Champagne Expands

I caught a story on NPR’s Morning Edition on the way to work about France expanding its Champagne region (and thus potential production acreage) to about 40 more villages in the area. This is, apparently, the first time in around 100 years that more territory has been brought into the appellation.

I can’t imagine how an eleven per cent increase in production will meet the soaring demand for genuine Champagne wines, but at least its a start. I’d be interested to find/read opinions from people and producers within the classic boundary.
