Champagne and Wine Glasses

How much you enjoy your wines can be affected by the type of glass you drink from; the slender white wine glass helps to focus the delicate aromas in a Riesling, while a big round Burgundy glass allows air to get to the wine, releasing flavours trapped in the liquid. Champagne traditionally is drunk out of wide coupes or tall, narrow flutes. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

The coupe is so wide that all the aromas escape without being fully enjoyed, but they look classy. The flute, if too tapered, does not allow them to escape but is perfect for a steady stream of bubbles. Next time you have a glass of wine, experiment and try the same wine in different glasses and see how it affects your enjoyment.
