The Champagne glass has a lot of work cut out for it when it comes to delivering what’s in the glass. A small surface area on the top is necessary to preserve the bubbles in a glass of sparkling wine, keeping the “mousse” intact. The tapered, narrow rim sends effervescence and aroma to the nose while controlling the flow over the tongue, keeping a balance between cleansing acidity and savory depth. All of our champagne glasses feature the ‘sparkling point’ in the base of the glass. That broken surface spot creates the ongoing stream of bubbles in the glass long after that of a glass that does not have that feature.
