More about Champagne
Developed by some of the finest Champagne Houses in the world over the course of centuries, champagne has moved beyond its origins as a curiosity from a corner of France to become a drink that is inextricably linked with festivities and celebrations. Best known for its delightful effervescence, delightfully light flavour and expansive bubbles, champagne will brighten any social event.

What percentage of alcohol is in champagne?
Champagne typically features an alcohol percentage of around 12% — slightly lower than most red wines, but with its subtleties slowly released via its effervescence upon sipping.
How long can l keep champagne before opening it?
When storing champagne, it’s important to ensure that it’s kept safely out of sunlight, at the appropriate temperature and upright to retain its effervescence. As a general rule, non-vintage champagnes can be stored unopened for three or four years. Vintage champagnes can be stored for a longer period — from five to 10 years. It’s also important to remember that like any wine, champagne will undergo changes to its characteristics as it ages; some of the bubbles will dissipate and the colour will slightly darken.

What are the best ways to enjoy Champagne?
Before drinking your champagne, it’s best to store it in a cool, dry place rather than in your refrigerator. Before serving, it should be stored in a bucket of ice to allow for chilling, then poured into champagne flutes to ensure maximum effervescence.
