This sparkling wine is created with the Italian Charmat method, with fermentation in stainless steel tanks which is then followed by shorter secondary fermentation in sealed tanks. The wine is then promptly bottled and released to preserve freshness. This method is used in order to create fruity style sparkling wines that have an intense varietal character.
There are few wine regions of the world with as much influence or fame as that of Champagne in France. The sparkling wines from this special area have long been associated with excellence and magnificent flavors, and much of their success has been down to the careful blending of fine grape varietals in order to achieve spectacular results. Most commonly, Champagne wines use both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varietal grapes in more or less equal measures, often boosted by a small quantity of Pinot Meunier for extra bite. The Chardonnay varietal grapes offer their acidity and flavor to the bottle, and help with the dryness associated with quality in this type of wine. The Pinot Noir, on the other hand, gives strength to the wine, and gives Champagne its distinctive 'length' of character.
