Default Is Champagne a poodle color??

I am just curious...I have heard this term used as a color description. Is that just another way of saying apricot or cream? Is it another color altogether? About 4 years ago, my cousin found a spoo running on the side of the road, and after not being able to find her owners, kept her. She is such a sweet and beautiful girl. She looks cream to me, but my cousin insists that her vet told her that she is champagne. I have never heard of this myself, but I am no expert. I googled it, and sure enough, some breeders are using this term as well. Can someone enlighten me? Thanks!!

It is Not a "real" color term in poodles. Most vets do not know the breed standards for any breeds, so i wouldnt go by that. Some dogs are a little more inbetween the apricot/cream spectrum though. I would personally call Riley more of a champagne color (he is registured as a cream).

nope. It's not a proper colour term. But then, Royal and Teacup aren't proper terms either and are used by some 'breeders' too

It generally refers to a darker cream/light apricot colour, but it's NOT a proper colour term really.

Yep - Lilah is light apricot/cream in color and my vet lists her as a blonde in all of their records

Although there is no such term as champagne, Romeo really fits that description as he is darker than cream, but definitely not apricot.

I wonder what color it was supposed to have been. Silver Beige? Cream/Apricot with brown pigment?

Could be what they called SB, and some SB do look to be more of a champagne color? In an old book I have it says champagne is a non-white in a black breeding, so maybe light more brownish cream? Sure wish they were here to answer!
