And within this there are all sorts of qualities - some of the supermarkets here sell cheaper ones & they are awful. As well as flavour the champers is judged on bubble size which is fun. France also produces a lot of good crement from the other wine regions. These are a fraction of the price and good especially if you are making a kir etc (- we did have it mixed with cointreau & I can't remember much of the evening!); Italy also produces some really good fruity, dry sparkling wines though as a few have said its all down to preference though good fun getting there!

A true kir is made with Aligote, a Burgundy grape, and creme de Cassis. A Royal Kir is made with sparkling wine/Champagne.
