Our selection of Champenoise Sparkling wines.

Born in France, in the Champagne region, in the seventeenth century.

In the Classic Method (in France called Champenoise), the so-called "Presa di spuma" is obtained in the bottle by adding selected yeasts and sugars. The process is long: the bottles, placed horizontally to allow the action of the yeasts, must rest for a period of between 6 and 30 months. After this initial phase must be rotated daily by 1/8, and at the same time inclined. This phase, called Remuage, determines the slow fall of residues towards the neck of the bottle; and if you want to discover some more curiosity about the work of the Remueurs ...

One or two months later, when the bottles have reached an almost vertical position, it will be possible to make the disgorgement (Degorgement). With special machines the neck of the bottle freezes, the frozen lees are expelled and the bottle is ready for the last step: it is necessary to compensate the leaked liquid during the Degorment with the dosage syrup (Liqueur d'Expedition), consisting of sugar and wine, and then plug them again, this time in a definitive way.

Difference between the methods? The Martinotti Method produces fruity and aromatic wines, light, ideal for an aperitif. An example? Prosecco.

With the Classic Method, more structured wines are obtained, characterized by finer and persistent bubbles. Not only that: the long period of rest gives the wine a hint of yeasts and a stronger body. The wines thus produced are suitable for all meals, and not just for memorable toasts. Champagne and Franciacorta are the best known examples of wines produced with this second method.
