Champagne bubbles: the science

As you uncork that bottle and raise your glass, take time to toast physics and chemistry along with the New Year

In a lab in the heart of France’s wine country, a group of researchers carefully positions an ultra-high-speed camera. Like many good scientists, they are devoted to the practice of unpicking the universe’s secrets, seeking to describe the material world in the language of mathematics, physics and chemistry. The object of their study: the bubbles in champagne.

How Champagne’s Problems Could Benefit Other Sparkling Wine Categories

How Champagne’s Problems Could Benefit Other Sparkling Wine Categories

2020 was Champagne’s worst year since World War II, with sales dropping during the pandemic (when excuses to celebrate were at an all-time low). In 2021, Champagne was hit hard again — this time due to substantial rain, severe frost, and mildew. This unfortunate trio of weather patterns eventually caused problems leading up to harvest, with low yields forcing many Champagne houses to release their reserve bottlings or in some cases, not produce any Champagne at all from their 2021 harvests. Although Champagne sales have rebounded exponentially in 2022, climate change is still a major factor in the region — which means concerns of spring frost and hail similar to 2021 are top of mind for producers of the French sparkling wine.

How Champagne Growers Are Trying To Reduce Carbon Emissions

To say the production of Champagne is heavily regulated is an understatement. The trade association Comité Champagne explains that not only are grape varieties regulated (there are seven permissible types), but the timing of planting is limited (authorities must be notified, and planting must be complete by late May or late July if vines are started in pots). Regulations exist to serve several functions, among them maintaining quality in the region's wines and protecting and preserving the land on which grapes for your favorite sparkling wine are grown.

Sparkling wine and a “spade of inspiration”

We like to report on rulings of the South African Advertising Regulatory Board (“ARB”) that are IP-related. Clause 8 of section II of the ARB’s Code of Advertising Practice deals with the issue of the exploitation of another party’s “advertising goodwill”, whereas clause 9 of section II deals with imitation. The trade mark issue of a likelihood of consumer confusion naturally comes up in enquiries of this sort.

STILL WINE NEEDS TO LOOK TO THE SUCCESS OF SPARKLING WINE IN NORWAY

Covid border restrictions in Norway triggered a surge in domestic wine sales as drinkers were unable to access the border shops in neighbouring Sweden or travel retail outlets and had to source their wine domestically. Monopoly sales of still wine increased by more than 40% between 2020 and 2021. Already in 2022, as footfall to the border increases, sales in Vinmonopolet are correcting themselves, but the still wine category will likely hold onto some volume.
