I have a question about the following sentences from a novel.
Marino got up to top off our champagne.
("Cause of Death" by P.Cornwell)
context (or situation):
1) Marino, Lucy, and "I" had been drinking champagne during dinner in the dining room.
2) Then Marino stood up to top off our champagne.
question: about the meaning of "top off our champagne"
"top off" has two basic meanings in a dictionary:
1) To fill or refill the final portion of something that is not empty, until it is completely full.
The waitress topped off my coffee every few minutes.
2) To complete, to put the finishing touch to (something).
The banquet was topped off with coffee and chocolate.
1) could not seem to be valid in this case. If 2) applies, the three emptied some bottles of champagne,
and then Marino stood up and took the last one from the kitchen.
Is this interpretation right?
