The viticultural areas of the region cover such a distance that there is a widely accepted division between its northern and southern parts.

The word of the wine: Effervescent

Any wine loaded with CO2 (carbon dioxide), which is revealed in the form of bubbles, reinforcing the freshness effect in the mouth. This gas production is the result of what is called the second fermentation in the bottle. It occurs in champagnes and sparkling wines such as crémants.
