A big subject. Yes yes yes. Champagne is just about marketing. It doesn’t say anything about quality or provenance. And the method is the same. ie Methode Traditionelle. It says the name only and nothing else. France has an enormous range of sparkling wines and guess what champagne is just another sparkling area with a difficulty in meeting the demand from the gullible public who think champagne is top dog. Its definitely not. So watch out for champagne that might not be from champagne in terms of the grapes nor could it be real. There are plenty of forgeries about.
The sensible way is surely a sparkling wine of more substance that you can really taste with a provenance from a real passionate wine maker who grows his own grapes, makes the wine himself and bottles it at the domaine AND at a price that is less than half that of champagne. That makes sense in anybody’s book. So go to our website gfwine.co.uk and select one of our brilliant sparklers. Sante. YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE NOW.
