What does champagne taste like?

Champagne has fine, persistent bubbles because carbonation develops under the high pressure that builds up inside the bottles.

Fine Champagne wines exhibit almond-like flavors with subtle notes of orange zest and white cherry. Other champagne tasting notes for the sparkling white wine include Citrus Fruits, White Peach, White Cherry, Almond, and Toast.

The aging process of yeast particles (known as “lees”)  gives non-vintage Champagne slight aromas of cheese rind. At the same time, finer, vintage-dated Champagnes have scents that smell more like toast or biscuits, similar to great non-vintage Prosecco.
