What is Champagne
Champagnes are just sparkling wines. Now you may ask me, how come not all sparkling wines are called champagne? To acquire the title champagne, the sparkling wine must be prepared in France in a region called Champagne and produced by a method called Methode Champenoise. There are several other methods used in the production like Bulk Chamat and Bottle Transfer, but the quality of the champagne produced through these other methods is lower compared to Methode Champenoise.
Champagne of higher quality has finer mousses. Now that we have agreed that champagnes are sparkling wines, the next question should be, what are sparkling wines? Sparkling wines are wines that are made from two fermentation processes. The second fermentation process is facilitated by adding a mixture of sugar and yeast then trapping the carbon that is released. The carbon is the one that brings about the fizzing and popping when the bottle is shaken in celebration.
Types of champagne
Vintage – this refers to the champagnes made from grapes harvested in one single year. These champagnes are aged for longer periods in comparison with non-vintage Champagnes. The longer aging gives them higher quality against non-vintage champagnes from the same producer through their consistency varies from year to year due to the weather while non-vintage champagnes are consistent every year. Vintage wines are only produced in the best years although a few producers also produce in lesser years.
Non-vintage – this refers to the champagnes that are produced by blending different grapes from different years and different vineyards to produce one classic wine. The blending is done after first fermentation but before second fermentation. Actually, most of the champagnes available are non-vintage champagnes. This category of champagnes are meant to be drunk immediately after production, but they also benefit from aging to increase rich flavors and finer mousses (the foam that appears on the top of the glass after pouring the champagne into it).
Blanc De Blancs – These are white champagnes made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes. They are lighter and elegant champagnes that are found in both vintage and non–vintage. They are better quality than blends of Blanc De Noir.
Blanc De Noir – These are red champagnes made from Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. These champagnes are more fuller and fruitier in taste in comparison with other champagnes. Just like Blanc De Blancs, these champagnes are also available in vintage and non-vintage types.
Brut – these are white dry champagnes from minimal dosage (blend of wine and sugar that is added to the champagne before bottling ). The brut category of champagnes is the most common in the market and is considered to be the original champagne.
Rose Champagnes – just like rose wines, the rose champagnes are achieved by removing the skins of the red grapes before fermentation. On the other hand, unlike rose wines, rose champagnes can also be achieved by blending white and red champagnes. Rose champagnes could be dry, but most of them are sweet. A great example of this category is Moet & Chandon Nectar Imperial Rose.
Tips For Buying Champagne
There is a common misconception that the most expensive bubble are the most quality one and are the ones you are gonna enjoy most. There is some little truth in this, but at the same time, I don’t entirely agree with it. Some of the brands have a higher price just because of the marketing strategy which positions some brands as superior. The fact is that old champagne, and mostly the vintage type has finer mousses than the younger and non-vintage types. The higher the age of champagne, the higher the quality and consequently the higher the price. When you are set to celebrate a bottle of this fine wine, these are the factors that are supposed to guide you to ensure that you realize the value of your money.
What type of champagne do you like? Champagne are categorized into 2 major categories as explained above; Vintage champagne and Non-vintage champagnes.
Rose, brut, Blanc De Blancs and Blanc De Noir fall under these two categories. The brut types are dry champagnes and are more suited to people who appreciate dry wines while the rose champagnes are the sweet types. There is a belief that vintage champagnes are of more quality than non-vintage ones because of their complex preparation method, but the truth boils back to the preference. The blending in the non-vintage champagnes makes them lighter on the palate which means they can be enjoyed any time unlike the vintage types which blending is limited to just one particular year then aged for long making them more heavier but better quality. This makes the vintage champagnes more premium brands but also very rare in comparison to their counterparts.
It is wiser to stick to a particular brand that you have tried and liked before. Some of these brands cost a fortune and might be better to let every dime count.

Consider the grapes utilized in the preparation that particular brand. Champagnes are prepared from three types of grapes; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. Each of these grapes has its particular influence on the end result of the champagne.
