Though a wonderful bubbly golden, traditional champagne is made from partially and often mostly red grapes (2 reds - pinor noir and pinot meunier - & one white variety - chardonnay - traditionally get blended). Unless it is designated as "blanc de blanc" in which case it is made from Chardonnay only (when champagne). Other white grapes are allowed for sparkling wines from other areas as well.
Whether they put in white, red or both grapes - the result is usually hard to go wrong with.
