Long ago it was a really something when a man took a woman out for a great dinner with champagne to an elegant restaurant.
But you must know that not any sparkling wine can be called champagne. Only those drinks can be named Champagne that comes from the Champagne region in France. The special chalky soil is essential because it makes the champagne grapes so unique. And this kind of soil can be found only in France. Champagne is made of only three types of grapes, and every each of them gives some extraordinary specialty to the aroma. Pinot Noir gives the body and strength, while Pinot Meunier adds fruitness and acidity, and the third one, Chardonnay means the creaminess and gives fruit aromas to the taste. Alike wines, the sweetness of champagne has degrees: from Brut (Brut Nature, Extra Brut), Extra Dry, Dry, Demi-Sec to Doux. As for me, my personal favourite ones are Brut champagnes, whenever I consume this noble drink, I buy Brut Champagne, nothing else.
We can find several champagne brands in the market, naturally with different tastes and prices. We can see a pretty high demand on the market; this, and the limited production explain the prices we meet.
