Did you know that 83% of Bingo players multitask while playing the game? They actually do and the fact that you can play the game physically with friends as well as online on bingo sites only increases the number of other activities you can be involved in while engaging in your favourite game. If you can play Bingo and Facebook or talk on the phone at the same time, why not enjoy some Champagne while you are at it?

Bingo night and Champagne is a perfect combination and if you need the right balance between entertainment and relaxation, by all means you should indulge. Then again, a good bottle of Champagne is not cheap and with the variety available, it gets confusing. If you must choose one for Bingo night, you have got to choose right. Here are some of things to pay attention to when choosing a bottle of Champagne.

Sweetness

On the label of Champagne bottles, you can get the information you need on its liquid content. Since the name refers to a region in the north-east of France where the sparkling wine is made, there are different variations. One characteristic that differentiates Champagnes is the level of sweetness, also known as ‘dosage’. We recommend a really sweet wine with doux or demi-sec written on the label (because you really need all the sugar you can get on Bingo night), you could also go for brut or extra-dry, which are known on the Champagne scale not to contain so much sugar.

Style

Another thing to look out for is the style, based on the blend of the 3 most common grapes used to make Champagne. Before you pause to check newsitesforbingo.com or any other regarded as the best bingo site in preparation for Bingo night, you may want to first know if the bottle of Champagne you are looking to purchase is made of white grape (Chardonnay), black grapes (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) or if it is a combination of different types of grapes. This means that you should check if the Champagne style is Blanc de Blancs (meaning that it is made completely of white grapes), Blanc de Noir (made of black grapes) or try a Rosé.

Ageing

When it comes to Champagne, ageing is important. You can tell by the taste of the wine and the price says it all. Finding out the age of the Champagne you are about to purchase is as easy as navigating through bingo sites. All you have to do is look at the label. Although the ‘tirage time’ of the Champagne may not be listed, once you are going for a non-vintage Champagne, you should know that it was allowed to age for a minimum of 15 months and that it is likely to taste a bit fruity. On the other hand, vintage Champagne is left to age for a minimum of 36 months and what you get, is a creamy and yeasty style of Champagne.
