Method Champenoise provides an elegant and long lasting sparkling wine. Since the bubbles are produced through fermentation in the bottle. The fermentation takes much longer resulting in a much finer bubble. Due to the nature of the chemistry of bottle fermentation, there is a much higher level of craftsmanship into producing method champenoise compared to other methods of producing sparkling wine.
