What is the ‘Champenoise’ or Traditional method ? This terminology is used to describe the method of making Champagne, the name Champagne being nowadays only used for wines produced in the Champagne region according to AOC criteria. So the « Traditional Method » (second fermentation) refers to what is considered the most meticulous if not to say prestigious way of making sparkling wines, even if they do not hold the AOC.
