Today marks the second installment of the Weekly Wine Quiz.

So you can put your answer in the comments for potential bragging rights!

Vintage-Schmintage!

Continuing our Champagne theme this month, many wine lovers know that Champagne is often a blend of different grape varieties, but fewer know that it is usually blended across vintages in order to produce a “house” style with a consistent taste profile year to year. The exception to the blended vintages is, of course, vintage-dated Champagne, which is produced in exceptional years only from grapes harvested during that vintage. What percentage of total Champagne production is vintage-dated?

  • A. Less than 5 percent
  • B. Less than 10 percent
  • C. Less than 15 percent
  • D. Less than 20 percent
  • E. Less then 25 percent

Cheers – and good luck!
