Does “real Champagne” exist? No! Either it is Champagne or it is not. There are many sparkling wines in the world but only one that comes from the region of Champagne. And nothing else can be called Champagne.
But it used to be common practice that whenever people drank wine with bubbles, they drank “Champagne”, when in fact, it usually was not from Champagne a little bit east of Paris. When they really drank Champagne they said they drank “real Champagne”.
Today, awareness is greater among most consumers. We hope.
Join us our tour to Champagne in September and you will have the opportunity to taste and drink many different “real” delicious Champagnes during our tastings and our legendary magnificent lunches.
