1. Champagne Coupe

The champagne coupe goes down in history as one of the earliest types of glass used for champagne drinking. This shallow and wide bowled glass is known to be particularly good for enjoying the flavour of champagne. The wide opening of the glass allows for more air to access the wine and unleash the various aromas and flavours of the chosen champagne or sparkling wine. This makes the champagne coupe perfect for serving a champagne or sparkling wine that features complex and more full-bodied flavours.

2. Champagne Flute

The Champagne Flute is one of the most used glasses for champagne and sparkling wine drinking, around the world. This flute shaped style of glass is so popular when serving champagne due to its ability to preserve carbonation. This long slender shape, on top of a lengthy stem presents a small surface area for the wine, allowing for bubbles to be condensed. When the bubbles are condensed, they flow to the top of the glass seamlessly and are preserved for longer. This presents the ultimate way to enjoy the bubbly texture of champagne and sparkling wine.

3. Champagne Tulip

For many, the champagne tulip is not a go to, but is definitely an underrated glass for enjoying champagne. This shape of glass combines the 2 styles of coupe and flute, to create a glass that is built to preserve carbonation and present aromatics in their finest form. This glass presents a tall shape, with a small opening allowing it to function similarly to a flute in its minimising the exposure of the wine to air and condensing carbonation. However, the tulip has a more rounded base, creating room for aromas to be released and trapped inside of the glass. This means you can taste the intricate flavours of your wine with every sip, whilst also enjoying the classic bubbly texture of your champagne or sparkling wine.
