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.
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
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.
