How Can You Store Champagne At Home
30th June 2021
Sparkling drinks have always managed to secure a soft corner in our hearts. Sparkling wine and Champagne are perhaps the most timeless sparkling drinks acknowledged globally, but the rise of sparkling CBD water is fast gaining significant popularity.
Today, you will find many US households storing CBD-infused water, which is hailed for its soothing and calming properties. Going by trends, it will not be surprising to find CBD water sharing its space with our age-old sparkling wine and Champagne.
Talking about storing sparkling drinks, preserving Champagne at home can be quite a trick!
After you pop the cork, know that your Champagne will not last long if you store it the wrong way. Pure Champagne is a costly beverage; it makes sense to find out how to take care of it so that it ages with grace, and you can enjoy your glass of bubbly for as long as possible.
Here are a few things to remember for preserving Champagne at home.
• Keep your Champagne bottles in a dimly lit place or a dark place, for that matter. The bottom line is to keep the bottles away from sunlight. But, your kitchen or garage is not suitable here.
• Store your bottles in a cool and dry place. If you have a temperature-controlled cellar or a fridge to store wine, nothing like it!
• The ideal Champagne is a magnum. If you enjoy Champagne and you are a collector, then getting a magnum will be your best bet.
• Some alcohol connoisseurs opinion is that when you keep a Champagne bottle in a standing position, the drink lasts longer. It is a pretty surprising fact but, there are so many possibilities. There is no harm in trying this one; you can try at least to know for sure. Logically speaking, if you want to store it for like one month or so, it is a pretty logical option. However, make sure that there are no artificial lights where you want to store your Champagne bottles.
• Now, if you have vintage Cuvees to store, you must keep them in a wine rack or a cellar so that they can last longer. When Champagne starts to age, the cork tends to become dry when the bottle is kept in an upright position for longer durations and that is a problem.
• Ideally, aging Champagne should be stored at a temperature of 7 to 10 degrees Celsius. Never store a Champagne bottle in a deep freezer or where it is very humid. The beverage will solidify if you keep it inside a deep freezer and on thawing, it will kill its fizz, subtle flavor, and smooth texture. Make sure to maintain a consistent temperature.
If you have popped open a bottle of Champagne, use a hermetic cork to keep it sealed. Hermetic cork is airtight and controls any chance of seepage. In case you do not have a hermetic cork, take a good plastic wrap. Wrap it around the mouth of the bottle, and to keep it intact, use a rubber band so that the fizz can’t escape. Your Champagne will retain its texture, fizz, and mellow flavor. Enjoy, be happy!
