Moscato v Champagne | 麝香酒與香檳

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?”

Champagne (French) Moscato (Italian)
Made of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier Made of Muscat grapes
~12.5% alcohol content 5 – 7% alcohol content
8 – 10 g/L sugar dosage 50 – 100 g/L sugar dosage

前幾晚,有位朋友發短訊給我,問我這瓶「香檳」是什麼來頭。乍看之下,我跟他說「老友,這不是香檳,是麝香酒,源自意大利。麝香酒普遍挺甜,甚至非常甜,酒精濃度亦頗低,多作伴甜品之用。」

十二小時之後。

「昨晚醉了,這是什麼?」
