Default Sparkling mead CO2 volume

Hi,

I will bottle a mead in two days. It is very dry and white wine like (0.098 when transferred to secondary after 2 months) I would like to make it as a sparkling wine/Champagne. I can't find the information on the web about how much Co2 volume I should aim for in this situation.

Do you know what range or carbonation sparkling wine and champagne normally have?

Thank you!

Sparkling wine and champagne do not necessarily contain the same amount of Co2. I've had sparkling wine that has had a very low volume, especially sparkling reds. Champagne has pretty high pressure, probably about 5-6 volumes.

Personally I don't enjoy drinking something as gassy as champange and I would probably go for about 2.5 volums in my mead.

All information in the post is basically made up and may be completely inaccurate.
