Champagne Wine Region Guide

Where Every Bubble Tells a Story of Luxury, Diversity, and Unrivaled Prestige


Last updated: June 11, 2024


The name Champagne carries almost mystical properties for wine lovers. The world’s most famous sparkling wines are made here: Krug, Dom Perignon, and Cristal are as prestigious – and sought after – as Burgundy’s La Tache and Bordeaux’s Lafite. Today, no luxury event can omit a bottle (or jeroboam) of a leading brand from this venerable region. Bubbles from elsewhere, however good, cannot be Champagne.

Yet, although the marketing would suggest otherwise, Champagne is not a monolithic category. Au contraire mon amis: a broad spectrum of styles and price points are available, including white, rosé, single varietal, single vineyard, super bling, and relatively affordable. Certain producers, such as Krug, favor maturation in wood and a period of exceptionally long aging, producing deeply complex and structured wines.

At the other end of the spectrum are supermarket private labels – very drinkable but hardly earth-shattering. Indeed, many Champagne houses, cooperatives, and growers are bottling wine under their own labels in this beautiful region.

And yet, they all fall under the auspices of just one appellation. How is it possible to keep such a diverse group of stakeholders united under one overarching banner? The answer is regional brand power: few destinations can invoke the mystique of the name ‘Champagne.’
