More about Mod Sélection
Recognised as one of the finest houses in Champagne, Mod Sélection began in 1892. Only the strictest selection processes and the most delicate extraction of first-press cuvée allow them to create one of the purest expression of balance in Champagne today. The Mod Sélection range stems from the exclusive enclave of the Vallée de la Marne, drawing on the expertise of five generations of growers to create the finest possible champagne experience. Since 1892, Mod Sélection have been crafting their wares, and have emerged as one of the finest Houses in Champagne. Thanks to their policy of the strictest selection processes at harvest, the most delicate extraction of the first-press cuvée, and the rigorous control of fermentations, Mod Sélection has crafted an exceptional range of champagnes for the public’s pleasure. The Rosé Champagne offers pale, salmon-hued nectar that entrances the viewer with both its colour and its delicate red-fruit bouquet and taste. It’s truly an elite take on the rose style, distinct from anything else you’ll ever taste. Réserve Champagne, by contrast, is the purest expression of Mod Sélection’s “House Style”. An unparalleled expression of purity and freshness in champagne, sampling this beverage is a truly peak drinking experience. Both are available in 750mL bottles, making them the perfect choice for any milestone occasion, to share with family and friends. Exclusively available in Australia via Bevmart, Mod Sélection is an integral part of our range and an ideal way to experience champagne as it was intended to be drunk.
What’s the difference between sparkling wine and champagne?
While both sparkling wine and champagne may be manufactured in a very similar manner, champagne is an appellation specific to a style of sparkling wine manufactured in the Champagne region of France. A great deal of emphasis is placed on tradition among the sparkling wines manufactured within this region, helping preserve the unique styles that first developed there while also innovating the drink into the future. There are many famous manufacturers — known as Champagne Houses — some of whom have been manufacturing champagne for hundreds of years.
What percentage of alcohol is in Mod Sélection?
Both Mod Sélection Réserve Champagne and Rosé Champagne feature an ABV of 12%.
How long can I store Mod Sélection before drinking it
Mod Sélection can be stored for several years prior to being drunk. The flavour and colour will develop during this period, taking on unique notes and characteristics over time. However, care must be taken to preserve it properly before drinking. It’s a common misconception that champagne should be stored in a fridge. While fridges can be useful for chilling champagne just prior to serving a drink, they’re actually not a good storage option long-term. Rather, it’s better to store it upright in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. This will help protect the integrity of your bottle of Mod Sélection, and effectively retain its distinctive characteristics.
What is the best way to serve Mod Sélection?
Mod Sélection is best served slightly chilled from an ice bucket, and then poured into champagne flutes in order to preserve the maximum effervescence.
