Brut is the most common type of champagne today. That means “dry” but in reality there is usually a little sugar in the wine. There can be up to 12 grams per litre but between 6 and 9 is most common. Brut is the Champagne we all drink the most of, it is produced in the largest quantities. Now more and more are extra-brut (maximum 6 grams of sugar) and even drier, Brut Nature (<3 g). And Dry is actually slightly sweeter! Which you prefer is a matter of taste. And it often depends on whether you drink champagne as an aperitif or with food. And it depends not least on how much acidity is in the wine. Champagne is always very fresh. There is nothing more refreshing and appetizing than Champagne!
Discover all these different types of champagnes on our wine tour to Champagne. You will probably realise that you like different styles, not just one style. What is exciting with champagne today is that there is such a variety. Champagne is not only a drink for celebrations. It is a wine with a variety of shades and styles. The tour takes place in September and another one coming in the spring!
