The most glamourous region of them all, Champagne, located about 160 kilometres from Paris, is famous for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, which elegantly combine to form the iconic drink that bears its name. Champagne developed a reputation for quality wine in the early Middle Ages and when producers discovered the secret to their unique style of Sparkling wine, great Champagne houses were borne in the 17th and 18th centuries and were identified by the Jazz Age, where Champagne was the symbol of the era. The region’s climate is such that grapes struggle to ripen and the base wines that are produced are extremely thin and acidic but the method of production is key to its success.
