A few tips (for choosing, storing, serving, tasting)

Serving and tasting well Champagne

HOW LONG MUST REST A CHAMPAGNE AFTER BEING TRANSPORTED ?

Ideally, bottles must rest a couple of days before tasting, if they were transported for a quite long time.

 

 

WHAT IS THE IDEAL GLASS TO DRINK CHAMPAGNE?


Plastic is hydrophobic and so it produces big bubbles, while fine bubbles are what is really appreciated in a Champagne : so plastic glasses are to be avoided !

Furthermore, the bouquet is better preserved in a flute glass than in a chalice. 

The flute, when not too narrow, has the advantage to maintain better the effervescence and to let appear a line of fine bubbles 
Some flutes have a point of effervescence, which is a matted part in the bottom from where the bubbles depart.
Chalices, as they are a little broader, are recommended for Grand Champagnes. 
 

SHOULD WE SWIRL CHAMPAGNE TO BETTER APPRECIATE THE AROMAS ?

It is not recommended to swirl Champagne to express aromas. This only causes a loss of effervescence which has no effects on aromas.
