Champagne Names – How do you pronounce them?

Posted on

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.

  • Dom Pérignon  Dom Peh-ree-nyon (“g” isn’t pronounced) 
  • Veuve Clicquot – Verv Kli-koh (not voov)
  • Deutz – dirts (French pronunciation with a soft “r”)
  • Ruinart – Rwee-nar (not ruin-art)
  • Piper-Heidsieck – Pee-pay Ed-sick
  • Mumm – Moom / Mewm (with a short “u” sound)
  • Pol Roger – Pol Roh-jeh (soft “j”)
  • Louis Roederer – Loo-wee Row-ed-er-ey
  • Bollinger – Bol-an-jey (soft “j”)
  • Moët et Chandon – Moh-et et Chan-dawn (not mo-way)

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.

On the days your team is not in action, you can go for a cruise, enjoy the sunshine, and use your yacht’s watertoys and the onboard amenities.  Soak in the hot tub…burn some calories in the gym…or catch match highlights on the giant screen in the yacht’s cinema room while being served cocktails by your private luxury yacht charter staff.
