How the production of champagne can affect the taste of the champagne?

Champagne is produced by the champenoise method.

In this method, grapes are harvested from the champagne region and their juice is extracted which then undergoes the process of the primary fermentation.

After the fermentation is done, yeast and other particles that can affect the taste of the champagne are removed and many other vintage wines are added to the champagne to give it its distinct flavour.

Then the wine is packed into the bottles and sealed and the process of secondary fermentation starts.

Once the process of secondary fermentation is completed, the process of autolysis begins because of the leftover dead yeast present in the champagne.
