Champagne will use plastic

According to Nukorc, an Australian-based synthetic closure producer, Champagne will be using plastic stoppers within the next three years. Their stoppers are made of compressed extruded plastic and have been tested for the past 18 months.
The company's managing director says that Freixenet - famous cava producer - and several Australian sparkling winemakers are already pleased with the performance. Synthetic stoppers are much less expensive than natural cork, they prevent cork taint (TCA), they perfectly hold gas pressure and come in any colour, which enables trademarks to match them with the cap, wire or label. Although 'high quality' Champagnes are far from ready to take the move yet, most Champagne producers who do not sell vintages to keep 20 years will certainly resort to synthetic "cork" very soon.
