Champagne in the spotlight for the holidays

The time has come for a toast with the family!

It's time to take out your finest flutes and your best champagne from the cellar.

How not to distort your champagne?

It is best to avoid the common mistake of placing your bottle of champagne in the freezer. Like all wines, champagne must be stored at a stable temperature, between 10 and 12 degrees and protected from light so as not to lose taste qualities.

We prefer the champagne bucket

Champagne is best enjoyed chilled but never frozen.

The ideal is to refresh the champagne 20 to 30 minutes before serving, in an ice bucket filled with water and ice cubes.

The advantage of the champagne bucket?

The champagne will be cooled gently and once poured into the glass it will heat up and reach the perfect temperature.

What is the ideal temperature?

8 degrees. Except for rosés and vintages: between 10 and 12 degrees.

If no champagne bucket, place the champagne bottle in the cooler part of the freezer such as the door.
