France: a country renowned for its wines and champagnes
France’s reputation is well established in the field of wine. Indeed, French wine is exported to the four corners of the Earth, most notably to China, Japan, and the United States. Bordeaux wines are particularly popular, as are Burgundy and Loire wines to quote but a few. Champagne obviously enjoys an incomparable reputation both in France and abroad. Marketing strategies of great champagne cellars have a lot to do with it.
In any case, if you want to go for a champagne tasting in France, don’t hesitate to contact Sparkling Tour!
Many champagnes to discover
Do you know much about oenology? If so, you certainly know that there are many champagnes. Of course, we can classify them into two main categories: white champagne and rosé champagne. But they can also be categorized according to their vintage – or “cru” – their year for the vintage wines or even to their “dosage” – their amount of sugar.
Having set the scene, let’s now specify that each “cuvée” has its own personality. In other words, from one brand to another, the aromas change just like the color and the “nose”. That is why each champagne truly offers a unique experience to the taste.
