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: Krug
Krug is one of the most prestigious houses in Champagne, and its wines are among the most collectibles and most expensive in Champagne. The house was founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, a native of the Moselle region of Germany, who moved to France and worked for a while. to Jacquesson, the leading champagne house of the time. The Circle's philosophy was that all champagne should be the best expression and avoided the general idea of a champagne hierarchy. Instead, he began to create a premium wine from a stock of wines separately vinified by the producers themselves, a wine that would later become Grande Cuvée. This wine is next to names like Dom Pérignon and Cristal, atop a champagne tree. and it's a blend of 120 different wines from 10 or more vintages from the so-called Circle library. It is aged for six years and has a complex brioche and spice character. Today, the wines are still vinified individually and kept in the Círculo's library. Every year, the cave chef leads the tasting committee, which decides on the final blend. This library contains reserve wines from the current vintage through the age of 50, which are made from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, which are grown in the Círculo and are used throughout the collection. The circle also produces several other champagnes, including rosé non. - vintage and vintage Circle, which is produced only in the best years. In addition, there are two rare and highly collectable wines from small enclosed areas that are considered some of the best in Champagne: Krug Clos du Mesnil and Krug Clos d'Ambonnay, produced from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, respectively.
