First, let’s talk about the process of champagne making. Perhaps you’ve found that champagne or sparkling wine was first found in the region Champagne, France. The grape harvesting is earlier in this region because otherwise the frost would destroy it. This means the grapes go through a double fermentation process, with the next one being in the spring. Due to the double fermentation, the champagne becomes a bubbly wine. The first time champagne appeared, everybody thought it’s an incomplete wine since in those years it was critical to prepare only still wine.
The most famous champagne brands come from Champagne. In this area, the most popular vintage sub-areas are Cote de Blanc, Reims and Marne. When selecting a champagne bottle you should consider the brand, the time of origin and the dryness. Expensive champagnes such as Dom Perignon are normally held 5 years in the cellar. You can check the label to see which vintage year is it from. The dryness of the champagne refers to the amount of sugar per litre. The best vintage is normally for the Brut class. Doux is the sweetest champagne; less sweet is demi-sec then sec, extra sec, Brut and extra Brut.
Serving champagne is done by preserving the bubbles. For that you’ll need flute crystal glasses. If the glass is too large, the bubbles will release faster, which will decrease the quality of the champagne. The crystal has a rougher surface than the usual glass, which helps stimulating bubble production; that’s why champagne seems more pleasurable in crystal glasses. Before serving, keep the bottles in ice buckets. The ideal serving temperature is below 10 degrees C. Before you pop the champagne bottle, after loosening the wire cage, hold a firm grip on the cork and then while holding it, twist the bottle slowly.
