Here’s what you’ll get from ChampagneHQ:
Almost every champagne drinker has their favourite, go-to label which was discovered through luck, trial and error, or a recommendation from someone they trust.
Through ChampagneHQ, you’ll learn what goes into these bottles, so you can understand what makes them so good.
Champagne can be made with several different grape varieties from different villages. It can be mixed in different proportions, fermented and aged in different ways, with more variations available to its makers than any other wine, creating vastly different styles.
Once you understand how your preferred champagne is assembled, you’ll be equipped to discover other champagnes that you’ll love, too.
While having a ‘top list’ in your back pocket is handy, it’s much better to understand why these bottles have been recommended in the first place. Don’t just take these recommendations and skip off to the wine shop.
We’ve created the sections below to teach you why the recommended champagnes are on the list, and it’s all free. After reading it, you might never need to look at the list again.
There are no shortcuts to producing great champagne.
Even if you’re already a champagne aficionado, you’re still going to learn some things in this section. Once you understand how champagne is made, you’ll be better placed to describe champagne’s characteristics with confidence and clarity.
At ChampagneHQ, you will learn about this and understand why your favourite bottle tastes the way it does. In this section, you will also learn the champagne terminology. Its makes much more sense to understand the champagne terms in the context of the making process.
The biggest problem in champagne today is that too many bottles reach us in poor condition. Things can go wrong in the way they’re sealed, transported and stored. From ‘cork taint’ to ‘oxidised’ and ‘lightstuck’, this section will teach you how to recognise the faults, how to reduce the risk of forking out for a dud bottle, and why you should never purchase Louis Roederer Cristal without the yellow cellophane.
