To be truthful, I am not sure.  

Jung's, Raintree Nursery, and Nourse Farms all sell what they are calling 'Pink Champagne' currant.  What I suppose is the same cultivar is listed in the NCGR-Corvallis Ribes Catalog simply as 'Champagne'.:

So the champagne designation is only an indication of fruit color & not some reference to superior wine-making fruit?
