A TOAST TO SPARKLING WINE!

Cosmopolitan (India) - - BEAUTY -

Here’s what your bub­bly goes through, be­fore it reaches you!

A mix of yeast and su­gar is added to the wine and then bot­tled for around 15 months. This is when bub­bles of CO2 are pro­duced.

The sed­i­ment and lees (residue) are con­sol­i­dated by rid­dling—a process that in­volves ro­tat­ing the bot­tle.

Re­moval of lees with­out loss of wine and CO2 is known as dis­gorge­ment.

To cre­ate a bal­anced acid­ity in the wine, a mix­ture of fresh wine and su­gar is added to the bot­tle. This is known as dosage!
