Open Champagne With Sommelier Saber

What’s better than the sound of a cork popping off the top of a champagne bottle? The tradition of opening a Champagne bottle with a saber was born in the Napoleonic era, by the general himself after winning a battle in 1812. This unique custom has survived to this day, and not only in France. After the wire basket is removed from the cork, the blade is slid along the neck of the bottle, and onto the thicker part of the neck below the bottle head.

When done in a strong, smooth motion (it takes a little practice), the cork leaps out with a bang and the Champagne flows out, and any resulting glass fragments fly forward, propelled by the pressure, creating a veritable firework of bubbly. The severed bottle head with the cork is then customarily labeled with the date, to serve as a reminder of the celebration, or the trophy of a battle won.
