Advises of tasting
PRESERVATION OF the CHAMPAGNE
In its reception, let rest the wine a few days. Keep your horizontal bottles in a fresh place, shielded from drafts and especially from light. Ideally, your cellar will be in 9°c in winter and enters 13 and 15°c in summer.
REFRESH A BOTTLE
The champagne does not ask to be drunk frozen, but only to be very freshly served. A too lively freshness perturbs the reception of the flavors.
In a bucket: the bottle will be plunged into a mixture of water and ice cubes. In 20 minutes, it will reach a cool temperature of 8°c.
A mature or vintage champagne will support 10°c.
THE ART TO OPEN A BOTTLE
Remove the muselet of metal, tilt slightly the bottle then revolve the body of the bottle while maintaining firmly the cork. This one will lift up itself of itself gradually and the gas will escape slowly.
Fill flutes in 2/3.
Pour the champagne with precaution so as to obtain a fine foam ruffle.
