Champagne is a Sparkling Wine that is produced by inducing a secondary fermentation while the wine is in the bottle. This secondary fermentation creates the carbonation. While Champagne was originally exclusively produced in the Champagne region of France, the term is now used by small batch winemakers of sparkling wines in other parts of the world. There are different types of Champagnes. Brut is the driest and considered the standard of fine Champagne. Extra-dry is less dry than Brut. Sec is sweet, and Demi Sec is even sweeter. Whether labeled Sparkling Wine or Champagne, it is a must have for special occasions. From launching a ship to toasting a loved one at a special occasion, it has shared untold special moments. It's the wine of celebration and no other is so associated with festivity.
