When Champagne gets transported into another country, it’s normal that the pronunciation is adapted to suit the language. However, if you’re curious how to pronounce Champagne names comme il faut (translated = properly), you’re in the right place.
Even if you’re quite confident with French, the names can sometimes be tricky as many originate from other countries such as Germany.
Tip: “on” and “om” sounds are usually nasal sounds in French, such as in Dom Pérignon.
The one that probably causes the most trip-ups is Moët et Chandon, which is pronounced moh-et eh chan-dawn – and not the commonly-said moh-way… oops.
Now you can confidently order a fancy bottle of Champagne (and impress the waiter) on your next holiday to France. >>
Remember. The city of Cannes, France is simply pronounced “can” (not “con”). The Cannes Film Festival is pronounced CAN, not cahn.
