To drink champagne is an experience - the cork explodes from the bottle, you pour the sparkling foam into the glass, feel the fizz on your lips, and savour the delicate bouquet. The type of glass you choose can enhance the look, texture and flavour of sparkling wine. Here’s an overview of the different glasses available, so you can select yours like a pro.
The glamorous coup or saucer, was designed in 1663, and later popularised in the 1930s. Its broad surface area means that bubbly loses its fizz quickly. Therefore it’s not considered the best way to appreciate champagne. Nor, is it an ideal choice for a personalised glass, because the short bowl doesn’t give you much room for printing or engraving.
The traditional champagne flute is a stem glass with a tall, narrow bowl. The purpose of the design is to retain carbonation by reducing the surface area at the opening. Carbon dioxide, released by the bubbles, collects at the top of the flute giving the taster a pleasant tingling sensation on the nose. The long bowl has visual appeal too - allowing to you to watch the bubbles travelling up the glass.
If you’re buying personalised champagne glasses for an aficionado, choose the tulip shaped flute - considered the best way to appreciate the qualities of a fine vintage. The flute is a narrow and straight-sided vessel, whereas the tulip has a wider bowl which curves inwards to the mouth. This gives more space for swirling, allowing more aeration within the glass, and focuses the aromatics towards the nose.
A contemporary variation of the flute glass with a flared rim, like a trumpet or bell. The attractive design has tasting advantages too. It directs wine to the tip of the tongue where sweet flavours can be savoured. It also spreads the liquid on the tongue for deeper appreciation of the delicate bouquet. Choose this style of personalised champagne glass if the recipient prefers sweeter sparkling wines.
Crystal has a higher index of refraction than glass, giving it greater sparkle and enhanced clarity. Using a crystal flute enhances the qualities of sparkling wines, enabling visual appreciation of the fizz and foam. As well as presentation, crystal actually improves texture. Microscopically, its surface is rougher than ordinary glass, allowing more bubbles to form.
