Why is the bottle under water?
The Puro is sold undisgorged, which means the yeast is still in the bottle. It's sold upside down so the yeast collects in the neck. By opening it under water, you give a place for the yeast to cleanly shoot out into, while the pressure of the water prevents too much clean champagne from shooting out. You could do it without the water, but it would be pretty messy.
Ah, thanks for explaining that.
