Hello everyone!
I know maybe it's a stupid question, but I'd like to know what is the difference between these two words above: bubbling and bubbly. For example, I'm not sure whether it is right to say bubbly shampagne or bubbling champagne.
Thanks in advance!

    Bubbly is purely an adjective, describing the wine as having the quality of forming bubbles. Bubbling describes an action that the wine is currently exhibiting: the champagne is producing bubbles (as we speak or at the time of description).
