Wine Tips and Advice from our Michelin award-winning Sommelier, Jurica Gojevic
The Champagne Wine Glass
Most people drink champagne from regular glass flute. However, if you are dining in a great restaurant and you order a good bottle of champagne, the sommelier should offer a champagne wine glass, the same (or similar, as there are different styles) as the picture above.
All serious champagne producers in a last a few years have started to produce their champagne glasses in an effort to educate people about drinking champagne. Champagne is the same as a white wine, in most occasions even more complex, just with bubbles, so why don’t we drink white wine from a flute?
The champagne wine glass is perfect for developing and displaying champagne’s complex characteristics. This glass allows a wide range of aromatics to unfold. Unlike a flute, the egg-shaped design allows the complex layers to grow and intensify, and the larger rim diameter enables them to be released in a way which is not achieved with a narrow glass. The glass also includes a ‘sparkling point’ to aid the formation of the champagne bubbles.
