Did you know that in Russia Champagne is not allowed to be called Champagne?!!!

Shampanskoye

Russian authorities are challenging the wine world with a new law put forward earlier last week that requires French Champagne producers to add the words “sparkling wine” on the back of the label if they want to sell their bottles in Russia.

Champagne producers are proud of their name and brand and some are refusing to use any reference to “sparkling wine.” Champagne is a region in the northeast of France, but more famously is the name of the sparkling wine produced there. Therefore the French Champagne producers have been left in a fizz over a new Russian law that they say tries to undermine their world-famous brand. This new law allows Russian producers of sparkling wine to use “shampanskoye” — the Russian word for Champagne — on their bottles. It’s shocking the industry world-wide!

So let’s get some bubbles and pop the cork on our lovely Champagne Deutz who have been making their distinctive, carefully crafted Champagnes in Aÿ, Vallée de la Marne, since 1838. Full of finesse, elegance and complexity and of course let’s call it Champagne!
