Champagne first began to be associated with royalty and the nobility as early as the 17th century, and it’s still considered a special drink today; perfect for festivities and occasions. Despite this, due to the fact it goes so well with such a variety of foods, it can actually make a very good everyday wine too. The name Champagne refers to both the region in France and the French rules of the appellation under which this unique sparkling wine is produced. It is in fact illegal under EU law for sparkling wines not meeting these requirements to be labelled ‘Champagne’. The method by which Champagne is traditionally produced is called Méthode Champenoise, which involves both a primary and a secondary fermentation.
