Champagne: Sparkling French Miracle

Champagne is specific in all aspects. Do you know that it is bottled in thick glass wine bottles with a concave bottom to resist the pressure of the sparkling beverage? That the cork has a mushroom shape and its metal part is called agraffe? That the temperature of served champagne should be 6 - 8°C and it should be poured to flute-shaped glasses so that its yellow tones and flavour could extend to full? And that, as the only wine, it may be drunk with any meal?

Grapevines have been growing on the slopes of the Champagne region since the first century AD, but it gained its fame at the time that the first - so loved and celebrated - champagne was made. According to a legend, the bubbles which made champagne famous were discovered by Benedictine monk Dom Pérignon in the 17th century by chance.

You may try the excellent taste of selected champagne brands in the Carlsbad Plaza hotel, offering an excellent and exquisite selection of best sparkling wines.

Champagne Louis Roederer is proud of its history which is almost two hundred and fifty years old. The unique taste of the wine was also appreciated by Russian Tsar Alexandr II on whose initiative Roederer became the Tsars court-supplier. Champagne Louis Roederer CRISTAL is bottled in special crystal bottles, designed for the Russian Tsar a hundred years ago. The wine-growing Roederer family, however, specializes in particular in the fantastic Brut Premier variety, covering almost 75% of their production.

Moët & Chandon, with a tradition more than 260 years old, is an official wine supplier for the Vatican and royal families in Denmark, Belgium, Spain, Sweden and Great Britain. The Carlsbad Plaza hotel offers two luxurious representatives of traditional wine-growing Moët & Chandon companies: Pink wine Rosé Imperial with fruity flavour and Pinot Noir; and Brut Imperial, composed of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier varieties with excellent quality supporting appetite in the middle of a lavish feast.

Cuvée Dom Perignon sparkling wine carries the name of the famous inventor. The brand of Cuvée Dom Perignon, however, hides much more – delicate light yellow sparkling wine with green glints, combining Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varieties.

Veuve Clicquot Brut from the hotel bar is also an excellent wine. The wine with a tradition beginning in 1772, whose fame and unique quality were promoted by a woman – Madame Clicquot - a widow of one of the owners who was nicknamed the Grande Dame of Champagne, offers first-class quality and extraordinary taste.
