CHAMPAGNE IS MADE TO BE SAVOURED. BUT WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO DO THAT?
When drinking champagne, it is important to take a small sip first and keep it in your mouth for a few seconds, allowing it to reach every corner. In fact, the tongue can be used to determine the character of champagne. We have created a small list to help you determine a champagne’s taste:
- Is the champagne rather dry or sweet?
- Does it have a high level of acidity? (Can you detect a tickle on the left and right sides of your tongue?
- Are the tannins subtle or strong? Is there a slight tightening of the insides of your cheeks?
- What about the alcohol content? Is it rather light or strong?
- Can you detect specific fruits?
- Does the champagne’s taste correspond to its smell
- Does the champagne create a sense of harmony?
