Top tips on serving Champagne

1. The right temperature

To chill Champagne to its ideal temperature, leave it in the fridge for 2 hours. Or fill a bucket with ice and one-thirds water and leave for 15-20 minutes.

2. The right glass

The best glass for Champagne is actually a white wine glass. While a flute will showcase the bubbles, a larger wine glass will reveal a greater depth of flavour.

3. Pouring

Pour at an angle so the Champagne hits the side of the glass. It produces a better aroma and taste and creates more bubbles.

4. Love the bubbles

Champagne and other sparkling wines will lose their fizz within 4-5 hours. The more times you open the bottle, the faster it goes flat.

5. Amazing, but true...

Finally, if your fizz is flat, drop a raisin into your glass. The carbon dioxide which creates the bubbles will stick to the raisin’s ridges then release it back into the glass, creating new bubbles. Try it! Top tips from Aldi.
