The New Year is com­ing soon and many are already stock­ing up on sparkling wines. How to choose a qual­i­ty cham­pagne?

Six signs of quality champagne

1. The first thing to do is to ask the sell­er for a cer­tifi­cate that indi­cates the plant, the man­u­fac­tur­er’s address, spec­i­fi­ca­tions and GOSTs, accord­ing to which cham­pagne is pro­duced and con­trolled.

2. Read the label care­ful­ly. Both stick­ers must be even­ly and firm­ly applied.

3. The front side of the bot­tle must con­tain the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion: the date of bot­tling, the name and address of the man­u­fac­tur­ing orga­ni­za­tion, the license num­ber, the sign of the cer­tifi­cate of con­for­mi­ty, the strength of the alco­holic bev­er­age.

4. Pay atten­tion to the pres­ence of a holo­gram. As for the bot­tle itself, it should be made of dark glass (wine in a light bot­tle ages quick­ly, turns yel­low, and may have a bit­ter taste).

5. Also check the plug. For qual­i­ty cham­pagne, it should be cork, not plas­tic.

6. In real cham­pagne, when you open the bot­tle, smoke will appear. Small air bub­bles rise in it.
