service for a king
The king of wines and the wine of kings should be considered in all respects.
That means respecting one or two essential rules. I often see, way too many times actually, champagne being dropped in an ice bucket and served in flute type glasses with temperature close to 6°c. While this can be useful to chill some champagne, this won’t do well with mine.
The first rule is simple, pour the champagne in large glasses such as the ones used for red wine This will allow the champagne to breath and recover from its long sleep.
The second rule, allow it to raise its temperature, there is no point to drink a good or excellent champagne too cold.
Otherwise you literally annihilate its taste, aromas and texture. It can be served cold but let it come back to a decent temperature, somewhere between 10° c to 12° c.
