Analyze

The creator has also provided the following information:
You get the feeling that most talented merchants are able to alter your champagne bottle, though only champagne can go inside of the bottle, and the item must specifically remain a "bottle."  Additionally, some merchants may be able to alter the way the bottle's cork looks and smells.

This bottle is limited in that when it runs out of charges, it will not automatically refill -- only a merchant can refill it.  Endless bottles are extremely difficult to procure.

You sense that you can try to OPEN, POUR, PUSH, and SHAKE your champagne bottle.  You can also OPEN your champagne bottle at another person if the bottle is still closed but recently shaken.  You can POUR your champagne bottle into an appropriate "glass" or "flute" drink container OR into a "champagne" drink (if the champagne is similar enough).
Cork
The creator has also provided the following information:
You have the sense that merchants will not alter this item given that it came from a specific Prestige Champage bottle.
