Champagne refers specifically to sparkling wine made in the region of Champagne, France, and all other bubbly falls under the umbrella of sparkling wine, though some regions will put their own name to them, like cava for Spain’s best bubbles and crémant for all other French sparklers.

Be sure to serve your bubbly well-chilled — it will taste great, concentrate the bubbles, keep the cork from catapulting, and prevent the dreaded froth-filled overflow. Click here to find 10 champagne and sparkling wine picks, as well as food pairings for them all. We can toast to the New Year with that!

I am sure you are inundated with suggestions for good bubbles, but I would like to add Ployez Jacquemart as a suggestion for you to try sometime. It is a small champagne house which we visit often (they have a b&b) and it is my favorite champagne. I have seen it in the USA at various stores. Worth trying! Thanks for a great article.
