There are a few things to consider when choosing your perfect champagne glasses for your special occasion. These include:
The shape of your champagne glass will affect the way you taste and smell the champagne. A flute glass has a large enough bowl to allow the flavours of the drink to develop, but a narrow enough rim which allows the effervescence of the drink to last longer.
A trumpet shaped glass has a larger rim than a flute, so the bubbles will dissipate quicker. Use with a sweeter sparkling wine for a softer and fruitier taste.
There is a little etiquette to holding a champagne glass, and the right hold can get the most from your favourite bubbly. To hold a champagne flute, pinch the top of the stem between your thumb and forefinger. Then rest your little finger just above the base of the glass to ensure the flute is kept steady when you are drinking. You shouldn’t hold the body of the champagne flute as this will warm your drink up too quickly, and champagne is definitely best enjoyed cold.
