    There is no such thing as sparkling champagne. 

    "...sparkling wine can only be called Champagne if it comes from the region of Champagne, France, which is just outside of Paris. Further, champagne can only be made using Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. ... In Austria and Germany, they call sparkling wines Sekt"

    The answer for either product is it depends - they make non-alcohol to 12-15% sparkling wine. Each vintner has there own preferred strains of yeast the grapes produce different amounts of sugars - so fermentation rates vary greatly meaning alcohol rates vary greatly.
