Champagne is a sparkling wine that comes from the Champagne region of France. Everywhere else in the world, carbonated wine is called “sparkling wine.” Everyone accepted this and respected it. Until now. Thanks Russia!

Russia like to call their sparkling wine by the Russian version of Champagne, Shampanskoye, and wants all sparkling wine imports labeled with a “Sparkling Wine” sticker. This has pissed off France pretty bad, so they retaliated by stopping exporting their Champagne to Russia. Almost everyone in the wine world, including many Russians, think it’s a silly new law. France is even taking this to the World Trade Organization to complain.
What are your thoughts? Does France have a case? What’s going to happen next?
