How does the type of champagne glass make a difference?
There are two reasons why champagne tastes better out of a specialty glass than it does out of a regular wine glass.
The first relates to the way our senses receive the champagne. A properly shaped glass preserves a champagne’s effervescence, so it retains the bubbly mouthfeel we expect from a glass of sparkling. It also funnels the aromas toward your nose, allowing you to better pre-empt and enjoy the flavour.
The second is psychological. The element of delight that comes with serving champagne in a more attractive glass subtly influences the way we perceive the taste for the better.
