FIZZY FACTS

Champagne! In victory one deserves it; in defeat one needs it. - NAPOLEON

The longest champagne cork flight in the world was 177 feet, 9 inches, set by American Heinrich Medicus in New York in 1988.

Sabrage is a technique for opening a champagne bottle with a sabre, used for ceremonial occasions.

The pressure in a champagne bottle is three times higher than that in a car tire.

Everyone knows sparkling wine can only be called champagne if cultivated in the Champagne region. Some might even know that a Benedictine monk by the name of Dom Perignon is (incorrectly) thought to have invented champagne. Here are some interesting facts about bubbly that you might not know:

Approximately 49 million bubbles can be found in a 750ml champagne bottle that is stored at 20ºC. Champagne has three times the gas content of beer! It emits 30 bubbles per second! Beer only produces 10 bubbles per second.

2

METRES

The largest bottle is two metres high and stands at Beaumont des Crayeres in Mardeuil, the largest cork (one metre) is also there.

The three traditional grapes used to make champagne are chardonnay, pinot noir, and pinot meunier.

The world’s tallest champagne glass stands at approximately seven feet and can hold up to 22 bottles of champagne. This glass was unveiled at a festival in Spoleto, Italy.

980 MI LLI ON

The largest crystal glass is at Taittinger in Reims and is the size of a large bathtub.

Heidsieck & Co Monopole Blue Top Champagne Brut was the champagne served on Titanic.

42 | w w w. fa b m a g s . c o . z a ISSUE 17 | THE AIRPORT MAGAZINE

In the Champagne region approximately 980 million bottles of champagne are underground.

Marilyn Monroe is believed to have taken a ‘champagne bath’ filled to the brim with 350 bottles of champagne.

James Bond loves champagne. He is portrayed drinking champagne 35 times in the Bond films.

Sinking champagne is the act of pouring out champagne in a sink, originating in Sweden after a ban on spraying. Sinking became a replacement for spraying as a way to demonstrate wealth.

200,000

3

YEARS

The largest single vat of champagne is in Mercier Epernay and contains 200,000 bottles.

Vintage champagne is one that’s aged for a minimum of three years and up to ten. It is the most expensive.
