Overall Impression
Classic sparkling wine or Champagne is typically a blend of three grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. Blanc de Blancs is a style made with only Chardonnay and Blanc de Noirs is a style made only with black grapes. Champagne is usually around 12.5% alcohol and has 6 atmospheres of pressure. The traditional method of champagne making is labor intensive and involves many complicated steps.
