Champagne: the most famous bubbles in the world
Champagne takes its name from the French region of the same name, home of the vineyards that produce it, the region of Champagne, an area about 60 km from Paris whose vineyards are divided between Grand Cru and Premier Cru mainly based on Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
The producers of Champagne are distinguished from the more traditional wineries by a name reminiscent of high fashion ateliers, to reinforce the luxurious symbolism that bottles of champagne represent: Maison de Champagne.
Among the best champagnes produced in this region can not be counted those Maisons that are now known worldwide for their high quality and elegance, including Krug Champagne, Champagne Cristal, Champagne Mumm, Champagne Pommery, Moet & Chandon, Louis Roederer and Georges Laval along with many, many others.
This is an excellent sparkling wine, among the oldest and most famous in the world and has always been a symbol of luxury and elegance subject to one of the greatest difficulties that winemakers are forced to face: the maintenance of the same high quality of their product thousandth after thousandth (i.e. vintage after vintage) regardless of the adverse weather conditions that affect the vineyard.
In practice, it does not matter if it will be too hot, too cold, if it will rain too much or not rain at all, the champagne must always be at the height of the previous year, a difficult task of the Chef De Cave of each House.
