Dear Winephantoms Aunt,
I love all things bubbles as I have done for many years now. I get excited as soon as I hear the bottle opening!
My problem is that I seem to get just a bit too excited. I mean, I haven’t even finished my first glass yet I am giggling uncontrollably, getting loud and flirting voraciously.
I have checked the alcohol levels and they are often quite low, what is happening to me?
Do not worry. Once everything is intact the next morning, you’re absolutely fine! The following my help you deal with your issue!
Research has shown that there is a little known phenomenon, relating to a part of the prefrontal cortex of the brain, referred to as “le Cerveau Champenoise” (-The Champagne Brain,-) This area becomes enlarged in the frequent drinker of sparkling wines. It facilitates an up to 60% faster reaction time to popping sounds irrespective whether they come from the opening of a bottle or the back of a horse.
PS; a brief reference to Le Cerveau Champenoise can be found in Edmond Burnstone Hyngleys fine translation of “Le Vins Nobles et leur Incidence sur le Cerveau Humain “ 1906.
