Champagne Types

 

In this section you can browse for Champagnes based on a variety of criteria.

Non-Vintage - These Champagnes are produced from combinations of wines from different years, or vintages. A more accurate description may be Multi-Vintage.

Vintage - These are produced only from wines of a particular year. Vintage Champagne is generally only produced in exceptional growing years.

Prestige Cuvée - This is the Champagne House's finest product. A prestige cuvée is usually made from higher quality grapes and is aged for longer. A prestige cuvée can be vintage or non-vintage.

Rosé - This type of Champagne is produced by adding a little red wine into the mix during fermentation. The effect is to give the Champagne a pink or orange hue.

Blanc de Blancs - Blanc de Blancs is a Champagne produced soley from Chardonnay grapes. These Champagnes tend to age very well and are ideal for storage in a wine cellar.

Blanc de Noirs - A very rare type of Champagne. This is a Champagne produced only from black grapes (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier).

Brut/Sec - These terms, and their variations, refer to the sweetness of the Champagne. Brut champagnes are the driest (least sweet), whilst Sec are the sweetest. Sweeter Champagnes should usually be paired with desserts, while Brut Champagnes make great apertifs and meal accompaniments.
