Definizione

Natural process in wines that have undergone a second fermentation – in the bottle [...] 1

Nota

Effervescence was neither discovered nor invented. It is a natural process produced by yeasts, the micro-organisms that transform grape sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide by fermentation. Mastering that process has been no mean task, gradually building an expertise that has its roots in the patient observations of 17th Century Champagne makers.

Effervescence only concerns champagnes and sparkling wines […]. […] the excellence of an effervescent wine is judged by the quantity, the size and the persistence of its bubbles, which alone can indicate the method used in its production. 1 2

Contesto

With age, the effervescence loses some of its exuberance, becomes more cushiony, more in tune with the nutty, toasty aromas typical of old Champagne wines that have matured on their lees in the bottle. 3
