The popping of champagne corks at weddings originated from the time of Napoleon. Under Napoleon's command, the Hussars, a type of Hungarian light cavalry, celebrated victories… by swinging their swords, and in doing so, cleanly slicing off the champagne corks. There is also a legend that states that the Hussars would ride at full gallop to one of the ladies holding up a bottle of champagne, and slice off the cork with one swipe of their swords. Note: Today, champagne bottles are beheaded with a specially made sabre/sword.

Yes, although it will lose its effervescence.
slice off the top of the cork and use a corkscrew to pull out the remainder, however if the cork is crumbling, push the remainder into the bottle and use a strainer to c…atch the bits. Not elegant but who knows when it is in the glass
ggg I'm almost positive it's called a muselet
A champagne cork is made up of several pieces of cork, that are grounded and glued together, like the letter T. It is shaped like a regular cork, before it is put in the bottl…e. The mushroom shape that you see when you open it, is a result of expansion of the cork by contact with the wine. An analogy would be a sponge that expands.
it is called an electromagnet
It is called champagne because it is produced in the Champagne region of France. Only the wine produced there, with few exceptions, can be called Champagne.
A split. The smallest bottle size of champagne is called a Quarter holding 18.75cls.
the tapered part of a champagne cork before it is inserted into a bottle is like a wine cork cylindrical and uniform
