Matured for several years in our cellars, Champagne Météyer Père & Fils is ready to be tasted immediately after purchase.
Did you know ?
- The younger and lively the Champagne is, the colder it shall be served. Mature Champagne will withstand 10°C.
- A wine glass is not the best for drinking Champagne, because aromas escape too quickly due to its flairing rims.
- The finesse of the glass enhances gustatory sensations.
- Too much coolness will disturb aromas and flavor.
- Residus from detergents and cleaning agents on your glasses "shuts off" the Champagne mousse.
- Cool your bottle in a bucket filled with water and ice for half an hour or by laying it at the bottom of your fridge for 4 hours.
- Remove the foil, untighten the muzzle while retaining the cork, tilt the bottle at 45° and turn it by holding it by the bottom and pulling the cork out.
- Drink chilled but not cold, at a temperature of 8° to 10°C.
- Serve in a flute or a glass.
- Glasses shall only be served half-filled to smell the wine.
- Glasses shall be rinced with hot water, without using any detergent, and shall be left upside down to drain and dry. Store them standing, away from dust.
- Keep the bottles laid down.
- Store them away from light
- Let sit a couple of days before enjoying
Champagne can be kept for 2 or 3 years if storage conditions are respected.:
- horizontal storage to preserve cork's elasticity;
- ideal cellar temperature between 10° and 14° C;
- crucial storage in the dark to avoid the "taste of lignt";
- humidity (good hygrometry around 80%);
- absence of vibrations.
Without a cellar, the Champagne can be kept in a refrigerated cabinet, or sheltered in its packaging, in a cool place.
