What is Champagne?
All sparkling wine is Champagne, but not all sparkling wine is Champagne. Sparkling wine comes in a variety of flavors. Champagne, prosecco, cava, and sparkling wine made in the United States are the most popular.
Champagne is only allowed to be named Champagne if it is produced in the Champagne area in northern France. Chardonnay, pinot noir, and pinot meunier are used to make a classic Champagne or sparkling wine from the United States. The term "blanc de blancs" refers to a Champagne or sparkling wine composed entirely of chardonnay. If you see "blanc de noirs" on a bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine from the United States, that means it's made entirely of pinot noir.
Champagne is prepared from a blend of grapes, most commonly chardonnay, pinot noir, and pinot meunier, though additional grapes are permitted. The grapes may be cultivated in a few different places throughout France, and they flourish in a variety of soil and weather conditions. While many wines stress "terroir," or the traits imparted by the vineyard, champagne is unique. The champagne house is the focus, since it masterfully combines several varietals to produce a consistent, balanced beverage.
The wine undergoes a further fermentation process within the bottle to produce champagne's distinctive bubbles. Many champagnes are still aged in caves, and they are rotated on a regular basis. The sparkling wine must be aged for at least 15 months, while many are aged for three or more years.
Champagne is frequently served as a toasting wine or in cocktails, but it also goes well with a variety of dishes. With sophisticated appetizers like oysters and blinis, or simpler snacks like deviled eggs and shrimp cocktail, serve a dry bottle. White pizza and fried chicken go well together, as do light fish and chicken dishes. Sweet champagnes pair well with fresh berries and soft cheeses towards the end of a meal.
Although the champagne flute is a beautiful vessel, many experts believe it is an ineffective manner of serving the bubbly. If you're pouring and drinking right away, a white wine glass is excellent for letting the scents to fully open. A sophisticated coup glass is also a fantastic choice.
About the Producer: Champagne Duval-Leroy
Champagne Duval-Leroy is the home of Champagne in the Côte de Blanc region. It was founded in 1859 as a partnership between Edouard Leroy and Jules Duval and is now in the sixth generation of family ownership - one of the few champagne houses that are still wholly owned by the family. Duval-Leroy is known for its eco-friendly approach to winemaking and was the first champagne house to produce certified organic Brut champagne. A variety of vintage and non-vintage champagnes are produced on 200 hectares (500 acres) of vineyards. About 40 percent of the estate's grapes come from Premier and Grand Cru vineyards such as Auger, Mesnil-sur-Auger, Aviz and Chouilly. Most non-vintage and vintage Duval-Leroy champagnes are dominated by Chardonnay and range from brut to Demi-Sec styles. Feme de Champagne, meaning champagne woman, is the tête de cuvée at home. It's a blend of 85 percent Chardonnay and 15 percent Pinot Noir, grown exclusively at Grand Cru locations. It is produced only from the best vintages and ages at least 10 years before launch.
