Champagne Six Packs Are Here, So Stock Up For MDW
Ladies and gents, we have some news that calls for a celebration, so bring out the bubbly — the mini bubbly, to be exact.
If you hope to be a sophisticated dinner guest, surprise your host this Memorial Day Weekend with a six pack of champagne. (Yes, champagne.)
You can now trade in your summer ales for a case or two of Moët & Chandon's latest creation: Mini Share Packs.
Whoever said six packs had to be confined to beer?
This latest offering features miniature 187 ml bottles of Moët's classic Imperial Brut and golden flute toppers, so you have the opportunity not only be fancy, but portable.
"Whether staying local for a backyard barbecue or heading out of town with friends, the Moët Mini Share Pack is the best way to elevate any summer soiree," the company said in a statement.
We couldn't agree more.
The champagne six pack is available nationwide, but keep in mind it's a bit more expensive than Corona — $99.95.
But that's OK, you deserve it.
There's definitely one thing sophisticated champagne sippers across the US need to keep in mind if they want to optimize their drinking pleasure.
Marie-Christine Osselin, wine quality manager at Moët & Chandon, told The Huffington Post that people who store their champs in the fridge are wrong.
She said it is OK to keep your drinks in the fridge for a few days, but any longer will affect the flavor quality.
In conversation with The Huffington Post, she said,
As corks dry out, the seal between the bottle and the cork loosen up and the Champagne will oxidize faster, changing its aromas.
You got that, party people? Make sure you're not shelling out $100 and ruining the taste of your drink. Don't sneak a bottle into your own fridge and save it for the Fourth of July because you're only making it taste worse.
The MDW possibilities are endless, so bottoms up and be safe.
