This Is the Surprising Reason You Shouldn't Store Your ...

NOBODY wants a warm glass of bubbly, but storing your Prosecco in the fridge could be ruining its taste - according to one drinks expert.

The wine quality manager at top champagne brand Moet & Chandon told The Huffington Post that refrigerating your bottles of bubbly causes the cork to dry out, affecting its flavour.

Marie-Christine Oseselin said it was fine to keep your sparkling wine cool for up to three or four days, but after this timeits taste will"begin to change".

"If it sits in the fridge for weeks, the cork can dry out due to no humidity," shesaid.

"As corks dry out, the seal between the bottle and the cork loosen up and the Champagne will oxidise faster, changing its aromas." Marie added that the same rules apply to sparkling wine.

However, if you fancy splashing out on champagne, you may be interested to know that Lidl and Aldi are stocking bottles for less than a tenne r.

As Britain continues to sizzle in the early summer heat , you don't want to be leaving your bubbly out in the sun.

Marie suggests storing it in a cool, dry place away from the light - a cupboard, for example.

And, instead of stickingyour Prosecco in the fridge or freezer before popping it open, cool the bottle in an ice bucket.

Fill the bucket with one third ice and one third water, andleave for 15 to 20 minutes.
