Vladimir Putin’s ‘champanskoïé’ coup described as the “most significant usurpation of a wine appellation in history”

“Кто не рискует, тот не пьёт шампанского” or, “only those who take risks drink Champagne”. Quoting a popular saying, Vladimir Putin’s words now ring particularly true. His latest diplomatic coup underscores his penchant for controversy. By stripping Champagne of its translation into Cyrillic (Шампанское, pronounced champanskoïé) and reserving it for Russian sparkling wines – with Champagne now to be labelled simply as ‘sparkling wine’ in Cyrillic – his latest law on alcoholic beverages has caused widespread indignation, from the wine region itself to France’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Brussels.

Brut force: how Putin’s champagne label law could spark a trademark dispute with France

Earlier this month, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an amendment to a federal law reserving the use of the Russian term for champagne – Шампанское (shampanskoye) – to sparkling wines produced in Russia.

Sorry, Putin. Your absurd new law can't stop Champagne from being Champagne

True Champagne comes only from Russia, according to Vladimir Putin.

The Russian president recently signed a law that forbids wines from the French wine region of Champagne to be labeled as Champagne — or, rather, shampanskoye, the Russian translation — if they are imported into his country. Those French bottles must be labeled simply as "sparkling wine" instead. Only Russian-produced shampanskoye, Putin declared, can retain the vaunted shampanskoye name, apparently an attempt to boost these domestic producers' sales.

France backs champagne producers after name change in Russia

A glass of champagne is a classic image of luxury and celebration. But it's also a drink with a fiercely protected heritage. France has vowed to stand by its producers after Moscow introduced a law that forces the word "champagne" to be removed from labels of products not made in Russia.

Putin's traditional method

On 2 July, while the European football tournament quarter-finals fizzed, Switzerland having ended French hopes, Russian president Vladimir Putin signed a new law and the genie of a Franco-Russian trade spat popped out of Champagne’s bottles. Henceforth, only bottles of bubbly actually made in Russia could be labelled ‘Champagne’ for sale in that country, it was reported. Proper champagne, the one from Champagne (as all informed readers of JancisRobinson.com know), was no longer allowed to call itself ‘Champagne’ in Russia. But Russian fizz was. ‘Sacré bleu!’ may well have been heard in the Champagne capital Épernay’s lunchtime haunts.

France makes first move to appease Champagne/shampanskoïe dispute

Some coincidences can be extremely ironic. At its AGM in Paris on July 12, the International Organisation of Vine and Wine discussed recognising Russian as the organisation’s sixth official language, just ten days after the Russian Federation adopted a federal law reserving the transcription of ‘champagne’ into Cyrillic (i.e. ‘shampanskoye’) for Russian sparkling wines only; Champagne can keep its Latin designation, but must be labelled in Russian as ‘sparkling wine’.

This is who drinks the priciest champagne

Since Champagne exports have been in the news recently, I thought that we might look at which countries preferentially drink the stuff. We are sometimes told about the top Champagne export markets, in terms of total value. For example, the AAWE recently listed these countries as the top markets for 2020:
United States (501.9 million euros), United Kingdom (338.2 m€), Japan (270.8 m€), Germany (167.4 m€), and Italy (146.8 m€).

Why This Prosecco Producer Has Removed The Wine’s Name From Its Labels

Why This Prosecco Producer Has Removed The Wine’s Name From Its Labels

Prosecco, a wine from the undulating hills in the Veneto region of northern Italy, graces drinks menus throughout the world from 5-star hotels to country pubs and everywhere in between. At first, the explosive global popularity of prosecco was a boon for Italy's producers. Then it became a burden. The ubiquity of the Italian bubbly means the label “prosecco” has begun to lose both its prestige and diversity. As such, Italian prosecco producers Duca di Dolle have chosen to remove the wine's name from many of their labels in a bid to prevent their product from being lumped under the now mundane umbrella term. Their aim is to demonstrate the quality and variety in their Glera-based wines, through tastings, events in their vineyard, and dinners of food and wine pairings.

EU court ruling could lift Champagne makers' spirits

Champagne makers have had their hopes of winning a legal case against a tapas bar chain boosted after the European Court of Justice clarified the bloc’s rules for the safeguard of products covered by a protected designation of origin (PDO). The case was initiated by the trade association that represents the interests of Champagne producers and houses. It filed a lawsuit before a Spanish court seeking to prevent the chain from using the sign “champanillo” on the grounds that the term infringes the protected designation of origin “Champagne.” "Champanillo" means “little champagne.”
