Champagne is a beverage that many people love to enjoy on holidays or other special occasions. The drink comes from the Champagne region of France, and contrary to popular belief, it is the only type of sparkling wine that can be technically referred to as champagne. It is distinguished from other sparkling wines because it undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle that gives it the bubbly appearance. Technicalities aside, champagne remains a favorite of many due its sweetness, fruity aroma, and fizzy taste. Since there are so many champagnes on the market, it can be hard to decide on just one for a specific celebration.
When you crack open a bottle of champagne, you should notice the immediate fruity perfume when you put the mouth of the bottle to your nose. The smell can be described as being very similar to applesauce, ripe pears, spiced apple pie, or freshly baked bread. This fruity smell is the result of yeast being added during fermentation.
