Champagne is the king of sparkling wines and must be made in the Champagne region of France to be considered champagne. Champagne is produced using the black pinot noir and pinot meunier grapes and the white chardonnay grape. Sparkling wines made outside of the region of Champagne are simply known as sparkling wine and include Italy’s prosecco and moscato d’asti, cava from Spain, cremant from other regions of France and a vast array of other fantastic sparkling wines from Australia, New Zealand and America among other producers. The bubbles in sparkling wines are formed during a second fermentation period when sugar and yeast are added to a still wine.
Beau Joie Brut is produced by Champagne house Bertrand Senecourt. Innovatively packaged in a recycled-copper casing (that itself is fully recyclable) which keeps the bottle colder for longer, this is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. A zero-dosage Champagne, balanced by sweetness of fruit, that will match well with food.
