Champage is usually made of (a blend of) 3 grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot  Noir and Pinot Meunier. Some other grape varieties like Petit Meslier are officially permitted, but rarely used.

A "Blanc de blanc" (white from whites) is a Champagne made of 100% Chardonnay, the only white grape of the three. Most of the times the red grapes Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are used as well in a blend. The color of the grapes is only in the skin, the juice is still white. If a Champagny is not completely white but has a slight blush, it is a result of a longer contact with the red skins during maceration.

Most of the Champagne wines do not have a vintage on the label. It means they are a mixture of several vintages. The idea behind it is that this way the wine maker can bring a wine to the market that has a consistent taste throughout the year without too much variation due to weather conditions in a particular year.

However, a part of the wines have a specific vintage, meaning they consist of at least 85% of grapes from that particular vintage. The vintage Champagnes are generally of higher quality and the best ones can age quite well.

The top of the Champagne wines are the "Cuvées de Prestige". These expensive wines are made from the best vineyards, they are always wines from a particular vintage. 

Champagne can be made in different degrees of sweetness. The "Brut" champagnes hardly contain any residual sugar: up to 12 grams per liter. A bit more sugar (12-32 grams) is in the Extra Dry (up to 17 grams) or Dry wines. Demi-sec has 32-50 grams/liter of residual sugar. "Doux" Champagnes contain more than 50 grams/liter but are quite rare.
