How to use a wine thermometer?
You don't need to wait until the last minute to measure the temperature of your bottle . If the bottle is too cold, there's not much you can do to cool it down. We advise you to use a thermometer as soon as you remove the wine from the cellar. Be careful if you have to open the bottle with a thermometer.
Don't wait too long either in case there is a temperature difference. Once you see the results on the tool's dial, it's up to you. Place the white wine in an ice bucket for a few minutes to bring it to the optimal temperature.
Is your red wine too cold? There is no question of exposing it to a heat source, or worse, putting it in the microwave. Subject to alteration. Prefer a bath in lukewarm water where there is no risk.
All wines have an ideal temperature
Of course, wine styles also make a difference if you don't serve red wine at the same temperature as champagne. White wines with acidity and minerality like Sancerre and Chablis are drunk around 8°C, but great whites are drunk around 8°C. Burgundy is best at 12°C. Beaujolais vintages and red wines from the Loire Valley must be served at 16°C, while great wines from Bordeaux and the Rhône Valley must be served at least twice.
