How long does champagne last once opened?

Champagne can last for 3-5 days once opened, provided it is stored properly. And, no, the spoon method does not work to keep the bubbles in champagne!


To help preserve the flavor and fizz, it's important to reseal the bottle with a champagne stopper and store it in the refrigerator. And not all stoppers are created equal. A great champagne stopper will help to keep the carbonation intact by preventing the gas from escaping. We would recommend a stopper that looks like this:

Chill the champagne before serving: Keep the bottle in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving. A colder champagne will release fewer bubbles, which will help to keep it fizzy for longer.

Avoid exposing the opened bottle to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures, which can negatively affect the quality of the champagne.


Avoid shaking or stirring the bottle: Avoid shaking or stirring the bottle as this will cause the gas to escape more quickly, and the champagne will lose its fizz.


 


If you would like to keep the bottle for longer than a few days, here are a few tools that will help with that;


- Coravin Sparkling



The Coravin Sparkling™ Preservation System keeps the flavour and effervescence of sparkling wines for up to 4 weeks due to addition of CO2 gas.


Cost : $350 + gas capsules Each Capsule preserves up to 7 standard 750ml bottles.



- ZZysh stopper

Created a number of years before the Coravin, the Zzysh pressurizes the opened bottle with 100% food-grade argon/CO2 gas. It keeps the flavour and protects the fizzy sensation of Champagne, Prosecco and other sparkling wines for weeks after popping the cork.


Cost: $80 fot the starter kit
