One of France's most well-known champagne producers has launched an Indian sparkling wine.

President of Moet Hennessy Wine, Jean-Guillaume Prats, told the BBC's Sharanjit Leyl that India's burgeoning middle class is eager to consume domestically produced luxury goods.

He said that despite India's hot climate, the company is confident it can produce high quality wine there.

Mr Prats added that the market in neighbouring Burma, also known as Myanmar, is expanding as well.
