Much like wine, you should keep champagne in a dark and dry place, preferably at 10-13 degrees C.

Lying them down ensures the cork does not dry out but definitely do not put the champagne in the door of the fridge – apparently the bubbles will be irritated by the constant opening and closing.

If you must, put your champagne in a bucket of ice
