How do you pour the perfect glass of champas?
We all love a good glass of champagne, but are we doing it the right way? Regis Camus, head winemaker of Piper-Heidsieck Champagne House, France and winner of the Sparkling Wine Maker of the Year Award at the London International Wine Challenge 2004; wanted to enhance our enjoyment by sharing some tips:
– First ensure the champagne is the right temperature ? place the bottle in an ice bucket, covered to the middle of the neck, for thirty minutes prior to opening. Never place it in the freezer!
– To open, loosen the wire muzzle, hold the bottle and with a hand covering the cork, firmly twist the bottle until the cork gently pops out.
– Taking the bottle by the base and holding the glass at an angle, slowly pour so that the wine falls against the mid-section of the glass rather than the bottom. As you?re pouring gradually tilt the glass upright until it?s nearly full.
– If the bottle is not finished and you wish to enjoy the remaining champagne later a champagne stopper is the most efficient way to keep the bubbles lively. If no champagne stopper is available a regular spoon stuck in the bottle (handle down) is the next best thing.
