Expanding the Champagne Appellation

There’s an interesting piece in the New York Times today about the proposed expansion of Champagne’s vineyard area.

Of course, any reorganization of AOC land is going to result in massive differences in opinion. I still think that the CIVC is going about it in a reasonably sensible way, but it remains to be seen what exactly will happen over the next few years. I only wish that they would take advantage of all of their extensive terroir research to do a more detailed cru classification, rather than just sticking to the binary designation of either being part of the Champagne AOC or not, but of course that’s hardly likely when there’s so much commercial interest involved.

The most insightful commentary on the expansion so far has been Tom Stevenson’s analysis (referred to in the Times piece) in Tom Cannavan’s Wine Pages – if you haven’t read it yet, you’ll find it here.
