Before buying, get to know a little more about Champagne…

Purva Marwaha - 24-sept.-2015 07:28:22

Before buying, get to know a little more about Champagne… Champagne is the festival of stars and is a big event celebrated in France and all over the world. The Champagne is a sparkling wine that is par excellence. Champagne:  an elaborate and a complex assembly  Just like the other sparkling wines, Champagne or the wine of Champagne is a wine under the category of sparkling wines. It is the specialty of the region Champagne-Ardenne (a part of the vineyard extended to Île-de-France and Picardie) and particularly of Marne department (that constitutes of 67% of 34000 hectares of the vineyards of Champagne) and is usually white or pink. To get Champagne, red and white wines are mixed together that are also from the same region. This assembly is universal and is done only for Champagne and it reveals one of the major aspects of this special wine. The assembly is a technique that consists of matching different wines from different grapes from different areas and is like a religion for the Champagne winegrowers and is very common in the French wine world. The different combinations of grape varieties (pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay) vineyards and many years of maturation allow Champagne houses produce annually quality champagne more or less equal to that of the previous batch.  The Champagne method or origin of the Champagne bubbles If the Champagne is a sparkling wine, how does it have bubbles? After the assembly of Champagne it is still wine. The Champagne undergoes another fermentation in the bottle, the first being in the tank after pressing the harvest. It is during the second fermentation that it acquires its effervescence. After the bottling is done, a liquor called "de tirage", which contains sugar and yeast that provokes secondary foam is added in the wine. The other steps that follow after the fermentation are: ·          Maturation in lees ·          Riddling ·          Removing of deposits ·          Adding sugar to sweeten the Champagne ·          Closure ·          Aging and bottling and tagging the Champagne Finally, the Champagne is ready to be enjoyed.   Source : Arthur Bernard  -,champagne-vin-blanc-rose-dom-perignon-pinot-noir-pinot-meunier-chardonnay-epernay-effervescent,10355,4025366.asp

French nuclear delegation to attend 7th edition of India Nuclear Energy Exhibition

Thomas ILHE - 15-sept.-2015 08:48:52

  The French pavilion at the India Nuclear Energy exhibition will host seventeen companies from the nuclear sector and two professional federations under the French pavilion organized by Business France at the INE 2015 exhibition. Besides attending the exhibition, they will meet key players like Larsen & Toubro, Areva and NPCIL.   The French nuclear sector is a cutting-edge industry with three major operators: Areva, EDF and Alstom. During the Indian Prime Ministers official visit to France in April 2015, considerable progress has been made on negotiations on the Jaitapur project. AREVA signed a Pre-engineering Agreement (PEA) with the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) and a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with & Larsen & Toubro, to prepare for the EPR reactor licensibility in India and increase localization, within the frame of the “Make in India” policy. In addition to these major industrial operators, the French nuclear industry boasts a network of different types of suppliers offering special products and services. The French nuclear industry’s turnover is € 46 billion of which € 5.6 billion is the contribution from exports. It employs 220,000 people and France is the leader in Europe and has second position worldwide in terms of nuclear power generation (with 58 standardized reactors). The Indian government is increasingly introducing initiatives to accelerate the development of civil nuclear power, making the sector a key priority to meet the energy needs of the country with limited impact on the environment. Indias current annual output of nuclear generated power is 5.78 GW, which it aims to increase to 14.6 GW in 2020 and 63 GW in 2032. The country is therefore set to become the second biggest market for new reactors between 2015 and 2032. India also offers opportunities in terms of maintaining and extending the service life of its current capacity, most of which is Pressurized Heavy Water Reactor (PHWR). There are ample opportunities for French companies interested to work in the Indian nuclear market by developing their contacts and preparing their offer for the upcoming tenders. Since 2010, the French pavilion has the biggest and most visible international presence at the India Nuclear Energy exhibition organized by UBM. The French pavilion is set up in partnership with two federations: AIFEN (stand G45 - Association des Industriels Français Exportateurs du Nucléaire) representing over 300 companies and major French associations (GIIN, Nucleopolis, PFCE, PFME, PNB). These companies (from VSEs/SMEs to large groups) represent all links in the nuclear industry chain from fuel production to dismantling, engineering, technology, components, generation and research. They are involved in power generation, creating research reactors, science, medical applications and water propulsion. G.I.I.N. (stand G45 - Groupe Intersyndical de l ’ Industrie Nucléaire) is an association of professional federations and organizations involved in the nuclear industry. As a coordinator of professional organizations, G.I.I.N. is a representative body defending interests against operators and authorities, while also providing access to information on the industry. G.I.I.N. also enables people to attend collective actions (exhibitions, conferences, etc.) and facilitates access to markets in France and abroad.
