The European Age of Exploration Was the Unlikely Impetus for the Birth of the Champagne Bottle

The European Age of Exploration Was the Unlikely Impetus for the Birth of the Champagne Bottle

At the start of the 16th century, spurred by the invention of the printing press and a push for overseas exploration, wood had become a critical part of everyday European life. It was used to construct homes and buildings, as fuel for heating and glassmaking, and it was the primary raw material for building ships. But by mid-century, Europe faced a serious wood shortage that would change the course of history. Yet despite its terrible cost, the shortage had an ironic silver lining: the birth of the Champagne bottle.

STUDY SHOWS CLINGFILM CAN REMOVE CORK TAINT

A study carried out in France has shown that plastic clingfilm can successfully remove 2,4,6-trichloroanisole (TCA), also known as cork taint, although its application is probably of more use in the winery than at home.

Influence of different screw caps on wine quality
17 May 2021 19:30
Influence of different screw caps on wine quality

Summary
Screw caps differ in the oxygen barrier effect of their sealing inserts. Too much oxygen promotes oxidative ageing, too little oxygen promotes reductive ageing. Reductive ageing under hermetically sealing bottle closures is due to the formation of increased levels of volatile sulphur compounds, in particular thiols and H2S, whose odour causes reductive taints. Their prevention by the addition of copper salts before bottling is commonly opposed due to a variety of concerns. As an alternative, a functionalised liner for screw caps has been developed. It traps the thiols responsible for the occurrence of post-bottling reduction flavour and at the same time protects the fruity varietal aromas from oxidative ageing through its perfect oxygen barrier effect.

The new generation of liners for wine screw caps offers unique protection against oxidative and reductive ageing

The introduction of aluminium screw caps for closing wine bottles in the late 1960s was revolutionary and instantly offered wine consumers the convenience to open and reseal their wine alongside reducing wine faults related to premature oxidation and cork taint.

Perceptions and advancements of cork closures

These days, sustainability is at the forefront of producers’ and consumers’ minds. What they drink, and how its packaging may impact the world, are a big purchase decision driver. However, when it comes to fine wine and the perceptions of various closures, there is a divide, often between what is best for the planet and what closure type a person deems as ‘fine wine’ worthy. Journalist Samuel Squire explores these perceptions and their implications for screwcaps and cork closures to find out where the line is drawn.

Why the French wine industry is running out of wooden cases, boxes and glass bottles

Members of the French wine industry have not even begun to think about the inevitable increase in the price of their wines due to the small 2021 crop, and already they have to contend with the headache of surging prices of dry materials. In recent months, supplies across-the-board seem to have become scarce, with price and delivery time increases for glass bottles, wooden crates, boxes, and even pallets.
