Champagne Etiquette

Should my Champagne be served ice cold? NO - Champagne is best served at between 6 and 10C. This allows all the flavours and aromas to properly develop.

Opening and serving Champagne should come as naturally as tying your shoelaces. However, if you're not sure how to serve Champagne these handy tips from Debrett's explain how to pour Champagne.

 

1.   Ensure that it hasn't been shaken.

2.   Peel off the foil over the cork.

3.   Point the bottle away from you.

4.   Remove metal cage over the cork

5.   Hold the cork in one hand.

6.   Hold the bottle in the other.

7.   Gently twist the bottle (not the cork).

8.   Aim for a sigh not a pop.

 

 

 

Notes

 

  • Always serve Champagne in tulip-shaped flutes; the tall narrow shape of the glass will preserve the bubbles.
  • Glasses must be scrupulously clean - even the most minuscule remains of washing-up liquid can cause the champagne to lose its fizz.
  • Hold it at the stem so your warm hands don't affect the temperature of the champagne.
  • Champagne should be served chilled, so sit an opened bottle in an ice bucket in-between refills.
