(Champagne, France) There may be fewer bottles of champagne popped to ring in the new year.

Sales of bubbly are down 5% in Europe.

Even the French, who drink the most champagne, are buying less.
 
Champagne makers are hoping to get a last-minute boost in sales in the U.S. and Japan, where the drink is seeing a surge in popularity.
