There is a very large variety
of Champagne wines as every producer
has his/her own blending formulas
and there are an infinite variety
of potential blends.
By combining “base still wines” produced from crus, grape varieties and years with different sensory characteristics, the winemaker (or cellar master) looks to create a unique Champagne with specific characteristics, whose style he or she seeks to replicate year after year.
Champagne is served chilled
in quite tall,
tulip-shaped glasses in order to concentrate the aromas.
