How to Pronounce Champagne? French Wine Pronunciation


This is Julien, the French winemaking guy
who makes wine videos here on YouTube. yes, wine videos! We are looking at how to pronounce the name
of THE most famous of all sparkling wines in the world. We are looking at how to pronounce the name:
Champagne, the French Champagne wine. So, as far as pronunciation goes, there is
going to be only two ways to say Champagne: 1) the American or British-sounding pronunciation
which are pretty much the same, the one you probably already know and 2) there is going
to be the typical french way, the way French people say Champagne. So the American or English pronunciation is,
as you know: CHAMPAIN. SHAM PAIN. In French, people in France, in Paris and
elsewhere in the country would say ChAMPAGNE. CHAM PA GNEH. I made a video about why you should stop saying
CHAMPAIN, so you don’t have to say PAIN in the word CHAMPAGNE, and pronounce it the other
way, the French way perhaps: Champagne. Champagne. It’s just a suggestion but I think it’s worth
considering. Have a look at that very video, it’s a fun
video, a bit of a joke around why you should say Champagne rather than Champain. I hope these videos are useful, and I’ll see
you soon in the wonderful world of wine, in the wonderful world of vino. Au revoir! Bye bye…
