Champagne for all Occasionsexpertz
Champagne is often an acquired taste and people discover the pleasure of champagne at various stages of their life, as their tastes develop. Remember, our pallets develop over time and we often hear of people who ‘don’t get’ champagne as a 21 year old, but really enjoy sparkling wine as they get older. But what exactly is champagne?
Strict rules govern the production of champagne and the secret of its fizz is a secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to create carbonation. It is the time and attention required in this méthode champenoise that gives champagne a higher price tag than that of ordinary non-carbonated wine.
Champagne first gained popularity in the 17th, 18th and 19th centurys, as royalty became associated with the product. The leading manufacturers made efforts to associate their Champagnes with nobility and royalty through advertising and packaging, which led to popularity among the emerging well-off middle classes.
Today you don’t need to be Royalty to drink fine champagne, as producers like Borel Lucas are producing exceptional sparklers at very reasonable prices.
