Champagne

Champagne (French: [ʃɑ̃.paɲ]) is a sparkling wine and type of alcoholic drink produced from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France following rules that demand, among other things, secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to create carbonation, specific vineyard practices, sourcing of grapes exclusively from specific parcels in the Champagne appellation and specific pressing regimes unique to the region. It contains the drug alcohol (also known formally as ethanol), and is used recreationally. Some use the term Champagne as a generic term for sparkling wine, but in many countries, it is illegal to label any product Champagne unless it both comes from the Champagne region and is produced under the rules of the appellation.

There are several varying opinions on the ideal drinking temperature of champagne. Most though estimate that the champagne should be served at a temperature of thirty nine to fifty degrees, or seven to eleven degrees celcius.

Everyone talks about red wine being good for the heart, but now research suggests champagne can have similarly positive effects on the brain, particularly with spatial reasoning.
