A Quick Overview Of How To Say Champagne
'Champagne' is the region of France which produces champagne, as well as the name of sparkling wine made there. By law (AOC), only sparkling wine produced in this specific region may be described as 'champagne’ – no other region of France can even qualify to call its sparkling wine ‘champagne’. Sparkling wine made in other regions of France is called 'crémant'.
This word is so well established in English that it would sound extremely pretentious to affect the French pronunciation when speaking English and talking about the wine, although it somehow sounds acceptable when referring to the region.
