In France and other europeen countries it's forbidden to call a wine Champagne unless it comes from Champagne. But America can because after WWI the U.S senat never ratified the Treaty of Versailles (which contained a clause about Champagne)... The downfall is that the quality Champagne-like wines now made in the U.S suffer from this semi-generic appellation (Napa, Oregon...).

Anyway, I recommend the Deutz, it's pretty expensive though.
