How to serve sparkling wines ?

by sarahrichardier

Considered as one of the favorite women drinks and the ideal choice for important meetings, sparkling wines are delicious when served at the ideal temperature, either as an aperitif or to accompany a dessert or dinner.

When serving a sparkling wine or champagne the question is what is the best way to do so for a maximum enjoyment. The ideal temperature for serving sparkling wines is between 7 and 12 degrees. Too cold, the flavors are lost. The perfect way to keep the glass is by the base, not the body, not to alter the temperature of the drink and therefore the flavours.

Serve champagne

Hold the bottle of sparkling wines to serve is one thing you need to know to do properly. Sparkling wine bottles have a slot at the base to introduce your thumb. This position allows you to serve slower and ensures a sparkling result.

Enjoy a champagne

During the tasting of champagne or other sparkling wine like Reymos, you must take into account the three following steps :

  • Visual : This is where you can enjoy the bubbles. The more they will present the best the drink will be. The crown of bubbles that forms on the glass and the colours of the bubbles are factors to consider. Color bubbles can be evaluated by putting the glass on a white background.
  • Nose: In this phase it is possible to appreciate the floral notes found in sparkling wines. To do so we must not move the cup, but simply smell.
  • Taste : In this phase of tasting it is possible to assess the quality of the bubble and whether it is creamy, soft and fine, noting the flavors in the mouth.
