A Year in Champagne

The exploding cork, endless tiny bubbles floating up and up in the glass, the indulgence, the celebration, the triumph. This is the essence of Champagne. But there is more behind the bubbles that make the wine, or the mystique. Only sparkling wine produced within the boundaries of the Champagne region is truly “Champagne.” With renowned wine importer Martine Saunier as the film’s guide, A Year in Champagne delivers a rare glimpse behind the scenes of the real Champagne through six houses of illustrious and independent makers who shape the image of Champagne around the world.
