Champagne

Champagne is a region in France and only sparkling wines produced in this region may properly be called "Champagne". Most champagne is made from several vintages and several vineyard sites, and produced by large houses who use this approach to maintain consistency in style, and which are well-distributed around the world. Recently, grower champagnes, made by individual vignerons and putting the accent on individual vintages and vineyards, have become much more fashionable. "Brut" (and "Extra Brut") are the most regarded types of Champagne and the driest. Extra Dry, Sec and Demi-Sec and doux are each slightly sweeter wines.
