Chilling Tips for Champagne
The ice bucket in various forms is decorative and ideal for chilling Champagne.
Tips for Chilling Champagne: The ideal serving temperature for Champagne is between 40 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit. If in a rush, place the bottle in a bucket with ice and water for 20 minutes. If planning in advance, allow for at least three hours in the refrigerator. In the refrigerator: lie bottles down on the bottom shelf for three or four hours before serving; or better yet, you can leave them there even longer, provided that the temperature remains constant. This way you will always have a ready chilled bottle to hand! It is recommended to never chill Champagne in the freezer.
