Champagne as you may already know, are some of the most popular styles of alcoholic drinks on the market today. However, their popularity fades only to that of the many different wines available for purchase.

When you enjoy champagne, you may find that sipping the bouquet of champagne out of a standard cup simply isn’t enough. To enjoy the full experience that champagne has to offer, you may want to look into adding a few champagne flutes into your stemware collection.
Champagne flutes can be found in a number of different styles, colors, and overall materials; allowing you to find the perfect fit for not only your champagne but your sense of style as well.
You can find champagne flutes at most home and garden stores, mass-market retailers, or bar specialty stores. However, if you find that you don’t want to search locally; you can always find the perfect champagne flutes online.
How much of an accident it was that Brut champagne was invented is something of a question. It arrived on the market in 1846, thanks to a Frenchman deciding not to sweeten his champagne before shipping it over to London, and the drink was a surprising hit. It gained popularity over the next thirty years until this unsweetened champagne was finally given the name “Brut champagne.”
Since that time, we have started to use not just Brut champagne, but different degrees of Brut as our measure for sweetness in the unsweetened variety of our champagne. A standard Brut has no more than twelve grams of sugar for every liter of champagne, whereas an Extra Brut champagne has half as much – no more than six grams of sugar per liter. Finally, a Brut zero (sometimes also called Brut natural) has three grams or less per liter.
Perrier Jouet was the name of this silly Frenchman who decided not to sweeten his wine, perhaps intentionally and perhaps accidentally giving us Brut champagne. Whatever the reasons he had, he stuck with his game, and one of the major labels that you will see as you become a Brut champagne aficionado is that of – you guessed it – Perrier Jouet.
So for anyone who has a taste for dry wines, this dry champagne offers a lovely, sparkling alternative that may well appease your taste buds. Just be certain that your guests are aware of what they’re drinking! If they go to their glass expecting a crisp, sweet, dessert beverage and end up finding this dry, unsweetened drink, they may not realize what a piece of paradise it actually is!
