Champagne Storage

If I have two bottles for a wedding gift that is next Sat (the 25) and I have to transport it on a 5 hr car ride, how should I keep it until the car ride? in the fridge? not in the fridge?

Does it matter?

We bought them yesterday.

  1. Just place them in a wine shipping box or other insulated container and try to keep them from getting warm/hot. I would not chill them. You don't want to chill Champagne, have it warm up/return to room temp and then rechill again.

    Basically try to keep them at a constant cool temp and do not put them in the fridge.
