How many “week in a Tuscan villa” can you watch being auctioned off? Champagne is wonderful diversion, no matter if it is called prosecco, cava, sekt or sparkling wine.
As you may know, champagne can only be called champagne if it is from the Champagne region of France. But we digress, what happens when the bubbly goes awry?
Well if the person opening the champagne allows the cork to fly across the room with a loud pop and the mouth of the bottle looks like a geyser, then they are a novice. It was told to me some time ago that when removing the cork from a bottle of champagne should be as quiet as a “sigh of a woman”, and without the loss of any champagne. Why waste a drop? Save the geyser effect for the next lock-room celebration.
Back to champagne stains. You may not notice anything at all once the champagne dries on your gown, but if left untreated in a few weeks the area may turn light brown or yellow. What happened is the sugars contained in the bubbly have oxidized (just like when you eat an apple and the core turns brown).
Anytime you get champagne on your clothes, please have them cleaned or you may risk a stain that is difficult to remove. Jeeves advice, ring us and we will remove the bubbly (and potential stains) from your black tie wardrobe without you having to lift a finger.
Thanks for listening, your man Jeeves.
