Moscato v Champagne | 麝香酒與香檳

A friend of mine text me another night, featuring a well embellished bottle of wine, and asked me if this “champagne” is legit.

“Bro, that’s not a champagne. It’s a Moscato, an Italian sparkling wine. Usually, it is pretty sweet, if not too sweet, with low alcohol content and served with dessert. As a rule of thumb, you can find the word champagne on every champagne.”

12 hours later.

“Sorry bro, I blacked out. What’s that photo?”
