Champagne vs Prosecco

Champagne and prosecco also make great gifts! Of course, like all our drinks, it comes down to a personal preference.
What is the difference between Champagne and Prosecco?
- Champagne is produced in Champagne, France, while Prosecco is from the Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia regions of Italy.
- Champagne is made from three grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. While Prosecco on the other hand is typically made from the Glera grape variety.
- Champagne is made with the traditional method which involves a second fermentation that occurs in the bottle, creating a natural carbonation. It is also aged on the dead yeast cells (lees) for an extended period contributing to the complex flavour. Prosecco is produced using the tank method, where the second fermentation takes place in a pressurized tank rather than in individual bottles like their champagne counterpart. This method makes Prosecco have a fresher and fruitier flavour with less yeast.
- They have different flavour profiles and sweetness levels. Champagne has a wider range of flavours and aromas due to the longer time it spends aging. It exhibits notes of citrus, green apple, toast, and brioche. It's range is more bone-dry to sweet. Prosecco has a light character and is more crisp with its flavours of appe, pear, and floral notes with a touch of sweetness. Prosecco is made with a slightly sweet or off-dry style.
What meals pair well with Champagne and Prosecco?
