Fine Champagne

Fine Champagne

[Fr. feen shahn-pan-yuh]
Fine Champagne is a type of Cognac. Unlike Grande or Petite Champagne, Fine Champagne is not a region in itself, but a controlled name applying to a mixture of Grande and Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie, of which at least 50% must be from Grande Champagne. The term "Fine" signifies a vintage spirit, and may also be seen describing Cognacs from a specific region - such as Fine Grand Champagne - in which case it denotes a vintage spirit made only from Cognacs in that region.
