Champagne René ROGER - Ay, France.

Advise for tasting

The ideal temperature for tasting Champagne is between 8° and 10°.
Put your bottle in a wine bucket filled with water and ice and leave for half an hour or put it in the fridge for 4-5 hours.

Pour the Champagne into a Champagne glass or a tulip glass so as to keep all the aromas. Avoid washing the glasses in a dishwasher as the detergents prevent the bubbles and the froth cordon to form.
The bubbles are brought about by the porosity of the glass. Therefore, from one glass to the next, they can be different.


Tasting is done in 3 stages:

Visual :
Observe the colour which will give you clues to the age or the composition of the champagne , then the fizziness and the ballet of bubbles.

Olfactif :
Shake and smell for a long moment to apreciate its flavours

Gustative :
Put in the mouth a small quantity of wine and keep it there for a few seconds turning it around the pallet.

To appreciate a Champagne it is best to drink it before a meal (from 10a.m. to 12a.m. or after 5 p.m.) or during a meal rather than after a meal.

Enjoy your tasting !
