At Lukas Liquor, we have an appreciation for all of the high-end bottles of liquor, wine, and more. But above all else, we love champagne! You might wonder what makes champagne so special, and we’re here to tell you about it. Stop into your local liquor store in Lone Tree, CO, to browse our champagne selection and pick up a bottle for Global Champagne Day on October 28th!
Champagne is made from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France! The wines are fermented, then bottled, and aged for at least three years before they can be sold as champagnes. It has been produced for over 300 years, and today is widely known and loved.
The Perfect Drink for a Celebration
When you’re choosing a drink for a celebration, whether it be a wedding, a special announcement, or a retirement party, champagne is always the go-to choice. There are many reasons why champagne is used for celebrations. It was first used as a celebratory drink in 1668 when King Louis XIV married his queen. Also, it simply has a festive and celebratory feel to it, so much so that it has its own day of celebration, Global Champagne Day!
More than Just Your Average Wine
Champagne has a unique flavor and aroma that you won’t find in most other wines. This bubbly drink that we all know and love goes through a second fermentation process while it’s already stored in the bottle. The bubbles are created when adding sugar and yeast to the wine before bottling, which produces carbon dioxide. The buildup of carbon dioxide creates pressure in the bottle, and that’s how we get the fun pop when opening a bottle of champagne!
An Elevated Flavor
Of course, we know that champagne is a sparkling wine that uses a blend of grapes grown in Champagne, France. The two most important grapes for making champagne are chardonnay, pinot meunier, and pinot noir. Others that can be used, but aren’t as common, include arbane and petit meslier, and more. Champagne has a light, delicate, and refreshing taste!
