Champagne is a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in the Champagne AOC region of France. Champagne producers have to adhere to specific production rules; the secondary fermentation of the wine happens in the bottle, this creates carbonation and the characteristic bubbles in Champagne. Some use the term Champagne as a generic term for sparkling wine, but in most countries, it is illegal to officially label any product Champagne unless it both comes from the Champagne region and is produced under the rules of the appellation.
