Champagne doesn't need too much of an introduction here as everyone knows it and everyone should have drunk it (if you haven't then you should....immediately!).
Champagne is a sparkling wine that is made from a blend of 3 grape varieties (pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay)
The bubbles of champagne come entirely from natural fermentation (method traditionelle or method Champenoise) and there is no added gasses.
Champagne styles are varied from white to rosé, light bodied to aged full bodied.
To be called Champagne the wine must come from the designated appellation of Champagne. Wines from other regions cannot use this name.

Wines made using traditional methods come from almost every wine region.
