Champagne is only produced in France, in the region that gave the sparkling wine its name, with black grapes, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, but also with white ones, Chardonnay. The process to produce this lovely beverage includes following the rule to a secondary fermentation, in the bottle, to create carbonation.
Some use the term Champagne as a generic term for sparkling wine, but the right word should apply exclusively for sparkling wines that come from Champagne (France) and have several restricted rules of production.
