Champagne, sparkling in the crystal glass, symbolizes celebrations, joy and special moments. This noble drink has a rich history, a complex production process and a remarkable versatility in pairing with food.

History of Sparkling Sparkling: Champagne has its origins in the Champagne region of France, where medieval monks began producing sparkling wines. It quickly became popular at royal courts and evolved into the iconic celebratory drink.

Meticulously Made Production:

  1. Vine Cultivation: Grapes of varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are carefully grown in the Champagne region.
  2. Pressing and Fermentation: The grapes are carefully pressed and the resulting must is fermented.
  3. Blending: Different base wines are blended to create a distinct blend.
  4. Addition of Expedition Liqueur: A mixture of sugar and yeast is added to trigger the second fermentation in the bottle.
  5. Ageing: Champagne matures in bottles for at least 15 months (and even longer for higher quality variants).

Diversity of Culinary Associations:

  1. Brut with Seafood: Its fresh flavors and well-balanced acidity make Champagne Brut a perfect partner for fresh oysters or shrimp.
  2. Rosé with Smoked Salmon: The red fruit notes of the rosé champagne complement the smoked salmon deliciously.
  3. Blanc de Blancs with Light Cheeses: Champagne Blanc de Blancs, made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, pairs wonderfully with light cheeses such as goat cheese.

New Year’s Eve and Nonstop Toasts: Champagne is not just a drink for celebrations; it is the essence of celebration. On New Year’s Eve, an open bottle of champagne means a sparkling start to the new year.

Sharing Joy with Others: An open bottle of Champagne is synonymous with shared joy. From weddings to graduations, special moments are always celebrated with champagne.

Whether Brut, Demi-Sec or Blanc de Blancs, Champagne remains the favorite holiday drink and a timeless symbol of joy and optimism. 🥂✨ #Champagne #Holidays #SparklingWine #JoyInTheGlass
