Just added notes on six sparkling wines to the First Taste pages here. Above is a pic of the corks from a couple of the Champagnes – you can tell that the Tsarine has had extra bottle age since disgorging (removing the yeast sediment left from the second fermentation in bottle) by the size of the cork – it’s been held in a compressed state for longer, and retains much of the shape it had in the bottle neck.
