How To Serve Champagne

Prepare for NEW YEAR CELEBRATIONS with EXPERT TIPS on how to serve champagne …


Margareth Henriquez, glamorous and charismatic president of the venerable house of Krug for the last ten years, knows a thing or two about serving champagne. This Christmas, she will serve Grande Cuvée 160ème Édition (a blend of 121 wines, with aromas of marzipan, gingerbread and fruit) in a white wine glass. Full-bodied and complex, Krug is created to be enjoyed with food so, as she says, “you wouldn’t serve Petrus in a flute”. With a stellar champagne, supper can be luxuriously simple – oysters, ham, mature Parmesan and a tarte tatin. She will also use the Krug ID, six digits on the label of every bottle, on the Krug app, to conjure more food suggestions and a specially chosen playlist to accompany each bottle. “Drink champagne and it’s delicious, drink champagne with this specially selected music, and see how the taste is amplified.”
