Perfect Serve Moët Imperial

How to serve champagne with style? Learn the 5 steps to the elegant Moët & Chandon opening.
Serving Moët & Chandon is as much of a pleasure as drinking it.
Here's how:

  • Step 1

    Place the bottle in a champagne bucket, fill bucket with one-third water and add ice cubes to top. Leave for at least 15 minutes before serving to bring champagne to the proper temperature (8˚-9˚C/46˚-48˚F).

  • Step 2

    Take out the bottle, wipe it carefully, then gently pull away the black tab.

  • Step 3

    Unfasten the wire cage without removing it completely while keeping the cork in place with the thumb.

  • Step 4

    Grasp the base of the bottle and twist it gently away from the cork ( rather than twisting the cork away from the bottle). Gently remove the cork.

  • Step 5

    Fill each glass two-thirds full. Ladies first, of course... and enjoy your guests tasting the magic of Moët !
