Bubbly fluted glass of Champagne

Traditionally, Champagne has always been a way of celebrating milestones and special times, like toasting the bride and groom on their marriage. Considered to be a flexible beverage, Champagne can be served with a meal or with dessert. For many years, this truly refreshing and exotic drink has been used as a way of celebration and just enjoying the times that lie ahead. A Champagne gift is luxurious and so very much appreciated.


Champagne is a romantic and sensual beverage

Champagne comes from the vineyards of the French region. If you get a bottle and notice Champagne imprinted on the label, you can rest assured that the bottle was produced in the vineyards of France. If you don't get Champagne that was produced in the infamous French regions, you are pretty much just buying the standard sparkling wine. You should also make sure that the bottle is spelled "Champagne", with a capital C. French manufacturers are very protective of this very name, and they are the only ones that are authorized to use it.


When considering a Champagne gift realize it is made using three different types of grape - Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay. Noir and Meunier are types of black grapes, while the well known Chardonnay is a type of white grape. The label on the bottle will signify what type of Champagne you are buying, so you'll know what flavor to expect. There are also types of this wine that are a blend of different grapes, providing quite an exquisite taste to say the least. A basket of high quality mini bottles could make the perfect Champagne gift. It could also be accompanied by exquisite handmade chocolate or the finest of caviar.



Much like sparkling wine, Champagne is very common with celebrations and times of great joy. Although it is actually considered to be a type of sparkling wine, Champagne is much better. You have to be careful where you buy it though, as a lot of manufacturers like to use cheaper grapes, which don't taste the same. If you have ever tasted this wine before you will know first hand what quality tastes like.



A popped cork reveals a bottle of bubbly delight

A lot of people prefer Champagne because of the bubbles that are known to spew forth once a bottle has been uncorked. The bubbles that spew from this wine are the result of tiny drops of liquid that are disturbed by the carbonic acid gas. Once the liquid is disturbed, the bubbles form and ooze out of the bottle. This is a natural reaction of the double fermentation process that can only be found with a bottle of Champagne.

There are several price ranges when considering a Champagne gift. Keep in mind the memories of the experience of receiving and enjoying this sort of generosity can be quite breathtaking and enduring.

The next time you need something special for a holiday celebration, anniversary or even promotion party, give a universally accepted Champagne gift. Few things compliment a celebration like the exhilarating bubbles of a beautiful bursting bottle. You can find a quality Champagne gift at fine wine and gourmet shops or

online, where you may be able to secure free shipping to the recipient's address and some discounts that make this gesture quite affordable. Many other stores that sell alcoholic beverages have wonderful ranges and selections, as well. Even though it may cost you a bit of money when you pop the top and feel the tickling bubbles you'll be glad you were a recipient or giver of a well chosen Champagne gift.
