WHAT IS THE IDEAL GLASS TO ENJOY YOUR CHAMPAGNE?
The thin, straight flute or the low, wide glass, which were previously emblematic and inseparable from champagne, are now much less recommended by professionals, who prefer glasses that allow all the organoleptic qualities of champagne to be developed and appreciated.
Like a wine, great champagnes, especially vintage champagnes or prestige vintages, which have benefited from long ageing in cellars, need space to express all their qualities.
Ideally, the wine should be tasted “in a glass shaped like a tulip and elongated like a flute, but rounded in the middle“.
For some time now, glassmakers have been creating new types of flutes that take on the characteristics of wine glasses, such as the flared base and the narrowed mouthpiece.
