The champagne is chilling in Paris in hopes of a successful conclusion to the U.N. climate talks. But temperatures are warming in the province of Champagne itself, 145 kilometers to the east - about 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer on average over the past several decades. VOA's Steve Baragona visited the region to see how climate change is affecting France's most celebrated and celebratory wine.
