Behind every bottle of sparkling wine lies a complex process that contributes to its unique character. Join us at Wine Affairs as we dive into the intriguing world of sparkling wine production.
Making sparkling wine involves a secondary fermentation process that occurs in the bottle, known as the "Traditional Method" or "Méthode Champenoise". This process gives the wine its distinctive bubbly nature. But there's more to it, and each step contributes to the wine's final taste and quality.
Understanding the Nuances:
The sugar and yeast added during this secondary fermentation, the period of aging, and the methods used for riddling and disgorging all play pivotal roles in shaping the wine’s flavor profile and effervescence.
