Some traditional French wine producers fear new rules to open up the sector could harm their protected vintages, writes Hugh Schofield.
Ravi Joshi's insight:
Vins Sans Indication Geographique (VISG) - is a new classification of wines that legalises planting vines and selling the resulting produce in the market. The regulation has been enforced by the European Union 01 Jan 2016 onwards. Quite naturally, there is support and opposition to the idea. Those in support contend that it will be opening up of the unexploited regions, many of which were producing wine legally till region specific delineation was done. Those against, have concerns that the whole concept of 'terroir' will be compromised and many plonk wines may tarnish the image of similar wines coming from regions with Geographical indication. Which side are you on?

Ravi Joshi's insight:
Some may consider it a total waste but some- sexy! Any which way, the glamour that Champagne holds within is the winner.
The bottomline is- that a drink with the spunk of a Champagne can sustain the bubbles longer and hence facilitate enhanced appreciation in a bigger bowl...while the lesser mortals are very likely to peter out .
