Sparkling wine is a type of wine that has gas in its composition, resulting from a second fermentation that may take place in bottle or in a vat. In sparkling wine, the two most common methods of producing this gas (carbon dioxide) are the traditional method (Champanoise method) and the Chamat method (transfer method). There are several types of sparkling wines, white sparkling wine, red sparkling wine and rose sparkling wine.

 

What is Sparkling Wine?

Sparkling wine is a wine with gas in its composition that uses white and red grape varieties in its production. It is the result of two fermentations processes, generally one in vat and the other in bottle. 

 

How to pick a Sparkling Wine?

How to pick a sparkling wine? The important thing to know is that there are several types of sparkling wines: white, red and rosé. Sparkling wine may also have the following designation:

  • “blanc de blanc” – white sparkling wine made from white grapes;
  • “blanc de noir” – white sparkling wine made from red grapes;
  • “millesime” – sparkling wine with harvest date;
  • “non millesime” – sparkling wine without harvest date.

As for sweetness, sparkling wines may have varied sugar concentrations: 

  • Brut Nature (0-34 g/L);
  • Extra brut (0-6 g/L);
  • Brut (0-12 g/L);
  • Extra dry (12-17 g/L);
  • Dry (17-32 g/L);
  • Demi-sec (32-50 g/L); 
  • Sweet (above 50 g/L).

 

What pairs well with Sparkling Wine?

Sparkling wine works with practically all dishes, hence the adage: "if you don't know what wine to buy, buy sparkling wine".
