Expert tips and techniques

Fact 1 - While it may be tempting to expedite the chilling process by placing your champagne bottle in the freezer, it's essential to exercise caution. Rapid chilling in the freezer can risk overchilling and dulling the champagne's flavors. Instead, opt for the gentle cooling of a refrigerator, where your champagne can gradually reach its optimal serving temperature without compromising its delicate nuances.

Fact 2 - The ideal serving temperature for champagne is typically between 50°F and 53°F (10°C and 12°C). To achieve this, allow your champagne bottle to chill in the refrigerator for approximately 3 to 4 hours before serving. For a quicker cooling method, immerse the bottle in an ice bucket filled with a combination of ice and water for about 30 to 45 minutes.
