How to Serve Champagne

Published by at 6:54 pm under Serving Wine,Sparkling Wine,White Wine

If you are serving champagne at a high class event, you should remove the cork quietly. If you are serving it at a loud party on New Years Eve, let that cork fly across the room! Just be careful not to hurt anyway when popping the cork. If you don’t know much about champagne, it’s basically white wine that is carbonized so it’s bubbly.

Wine is best served in long-stemmed glasses or tulip shaped glasses. This special shape helps enhance the bubbles and wine aromas.

Champagne is a sparkling wine but should not be served as warm as a red or white wine. It should be served a bit cooler around 42-48 degrees F.

To get this temperature, you should take a bottle of wine that isn’t chilled and put it in an ice bucket for about a half hour.

If you don’t have an ice bucket, you’ll have to put your champagne in the fridge for about 3 hours. Leaving the champagne in the fridge overnight is not a good idea because it will become too cold.

Serving champagne in the proper glass and at the proper temperature will bring out the best flavors and aromas.
