Don't be silly. Champagne is a region of France. The name Champagne is rigorously protected, and anybody outside the Champagne region who claims to produce Champagne is liable to prosecution and severe penalties. The legal protection of the name and the lawsuits involved is one of the costs which make the price of Champagne so high.
