Christened yachts and ocean liners; served at weddings around the world; recognised as a must-have for
celebrations, the global love to buy champagne has lasted for centuries and never seems to stop.
Thanks to the region's distinct terroir and weather, grapes for producing sparkling wine grow better in
champagne than elsewhere in the entire world, making the region's name an equivalent of top-quality French
sparkling wine. The quality of the grapes is strictly governed by regulations. Among all produce, only 7
specific varieties of grapes are allowed in the production of champagne, in any combination. While several of
them are rare, a majority of champagne that you can buy in Hong Kong is made with only 3 of those grapes,
including Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay.
Although champagne is considered a member of the sparkling wine family, the flavours of champagne, especially
the ones you buy in Hong Kong, vary quite a lot with sparkling wines. The result of the champagne region’s
extremely cold climate and limestone soils create extremely distinctive taste profiles and textures. Lots of
the champagnes available on the market are categorised as Non-Vintage (NV) Champagnes. A step up would be a
Vintage and at the very top, are prestige Cuvee Champagnes.
The second you sip it, a good champagne could be both creamy and crispy at the same time. Apart from the golden
ones, opt also for rosé champagnes in Hong Kong that are made with additional Pinot Noir. They usually give out
a deeper flavour and are sometimes richer in both texture and taste.

1. How do you store champagne?
Champagne should typically be stored in a cool, dark area standing upright. However, for long-term storage, it
is best stored on its side to prevent the cork from drying out and oxidising. The ideal temperature for
champagne storage is between 8-10°C (47-50°F). If you live in a humid place like Hong Kong, it’s important to
keep humidity levels low because high humidity can cause damp corks and risk ruining the champagne over time.
Lastly, make sure your bottles are stored out of direct sunlight as this can heat up your bottles and age them
2. How long does champagne last after opening?
Once opened, champagne should be consumed within three to five days to fully experience the bubbly's full
flavour. Beyond this point, the taste will begin to dull, and the carbonation will fade. Make sure to keep the
champagne refrigerated in an airtight bottle to ensure that your champagne maintains its flavour and quality
for the longest time possible.
3. What pairs well with champagne?
High-quality champagne is great to sip, savour and enjoy on its own. However, it goes beautifully with a
variety of foods as well. At Dram Good Stuff HK, we recommend pairing champagne with salty and savoury dishes
that can stand up to the intensity of the bubbles and acidic taste of the beverage, including salty snacks like
cheese crisps or pretzels; rich seafood such as lobster, caviar or smoked salmon; poultry-inspired dishes such
as roasted chicken or quail; and pork-based dishes such as pork roast with mustard sauce. Additionally, light
desserts work well after a multi-course meal featuring champagne. Think delicate tarts made with seasonal fruit
or lightly sweetened custards like panna cotta topped with fresh berries.
