The combination of a chalk subsoil and a cooler northerly climate help to produce the acidity necessary to make these highly prized wines! Champagne is considered the king of sparkling wines which offer a range of styles from dry to medium (demi-sec), white and rosé. Most is sold as non-vintage but for a real treat go for a Vintage Champagne!
Reims and Epernay claim to be the capital of Champagne, and where the main big name Champagne houses and cellars are located. But there are many smaller individual winemakers in the region which stretches south to Bar-sur-Aube.
