These Champagne Corks are the real deal. They measure 30 X 47 mm, and they are straight. You need to use a champagne corker and European-style champagne bottles with these corks. The corks are beveled on the top end with pure cork disks on the bottom.
NOTE: These corks will not fit our Green Champagne bottles (#6513). They are too large and designed for larger European-style champagne bottles. If using our green champagne bottles, use the Belgian Style Corks and Champagne Wire Hoods

2.5 / 5.02 ReviewsToo bigI bought these to bottle a batch of tripel in traditional fashion. I used regular champagne bottles and an Italian corker. Tough to get corked, worse to uncork.January 14, 2014CrumblyCorks are tough to get into bottle and tend to crumble as you compress them in. I can't really recommend these since you can't really cork them without them falling apart.December 19, 2015

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 1 answerI bought these corks and inserted them with some difficulty into champagne bottles. Now that I want to enjoy the sparkling wine, it is impossible to remove the corks without cutting off the top and using a cork removal tool. The cork has to be inserted far enough to install the wire basket around the bottle lip. I have thought of cutting about 1/2 inch off of the corks. What do you recommend for my next batch of sparkling wine?BEST ANSWER: The corks need sufficient time to expand and sufficient carbonation behind them to provide back pressure. You could try belgian beer corks - they are smaller and easier to get out.
