    1. I took your flat query up with Moet. They said no Don, at such deep pressures the bubbles are kept forced in the bottle indefinitely. They recently proved this (in front of gathered media) with a titanic bottle-opening ceremony. Bubbles went everywhere…..

      Thought this bit of trivia might interest……..

      1. I think the folks from Moët were pulling your cork. According to experts, unopened bottled champagne will last three to four years if it is non-vintage; five to ten years if it is a vintage, before losing its fizz.

      2. Maybe I am a bit naive. Then again said experts would be dealing with sea-level bottles. Those at 3,800m are very different. The enormous pressure would keep corks well and truly plugged in….my scientific mind tells me
