Say ‘Cheers’ to Chinese champagne

Moet et Chandon have announced plans to create China's first sparkling wine using the traditional French methods. Moet Hennessy, the makers of Dom Perignon and Krug, signed a deal to turn the Ningxia area, situated on the flood plains of the Yellow river, into China's 'Champagne' region. The tiny region is China's third-poorest and farmers have traditionally grown watermelons and berries there.

The first batch of bubbly will be ready in three years, and will reportedly be significantly cheaper than its real-deal French counterparts. Chinese consumers' appetite for luxury goods have grown significantly in the past few years, and the sparkling wine will 'educate a new generation of wine consumers,' a spokesperson said. 

Only wines from the eponymous region of France can be labelled champagne, but Moet's experts said the soil and climate of Ningxia closely match the terroir of Rheims.
