Can you tell the difference between a champagne and other sparkling wines?

We’ve had the question many times. It is not an easy question. Yes, often we do, but it depends on what kind of champagne it is and what kind of “other” sparkling wine. But it is admittedly hard to beat a really well-made champagne. Perhaps it is toasty, maybe white flowers, green apples, or honey. The taste is mouth-filling, stays with you for a long time and is refreshing.

On our wine tour to Champagne you will get a real insight into the difference between a champagne and other sparkling wines. But if a champagne is “better” is perhaps not the most important thing. It should (and does) come from the hills in Champagne in north-east France. Nor from anywhere else! And that it tastes delicious.

The wine tour to Champagne takes place in April.

(And early next year our new book on Champagne will be available.)
