The best glasses for champagne
No other type of glass will do the champagne justice and bring out nor enhance the taste experience, as a champagne glass will. So the best glass for champagne is, without a doubt, a champagne glass, that in one way or another is made for the purpose - drinking champagne. The champagne glass that you choose will make a difference to the taste, aroma and bubbles.
Why are champagne glasses shaped the way they are?
Regardless of the shape and design of the glasses, all champagne glasses are designed to emphasise the champagne's taste, aroma and a feeling of exclusivity. Many champagne glasses have a slight unevenness along the bottom of the cup, which allow for a bubble column to form. An ordinary wine glass is not designed to preserve the flow of bubbles in the same way. Therefore, it is recommended to buy real champagne glasses when the opportunity arises to pop open a bottle.
3 Types of champagne glasses
Choosing the best champagne glass shape may seem like a whole science in itself. In the end, it's not just about what is most appealing in terms of style, but also what taste experience you want to achieve. Above all, there are three different types of champagne glasses that emphasise the drink in different ways.
1. Champagne flutes
For those who want the bubbles to last longer, there is the champagne flute glass, which today has become increasingly common. Thanks to its tall and slender shape, the glass keeps the bubbles in the champagne longer. This is because it takes longer for the bubbles to rise to the surface. Typically champagne flutes have a long stem, which makes them easy to hold and also prevents the drink from warming by the heat of your hand.
2. Champagne coupe glasses
The coupe glass, also know as the champagne bowl or champagne saucer glass, is a classic and festive wide champagne glass, characterised by its round low cup and short stem. These traditional champagne glasses are not only perfect for serving a classy drink, but can also work wonderfully as a luxury serving bowl for entrees and desserts. These glasses are also best suited for building champagne towers, which have become popular at parties and weddings. For a really extravagant look, choose crystal champagne coupe glasses to impress your guests at your next dinner party. With us at Nordic Nest, you will be able to find the best champagne coupe glasses in a range of styles and sizes for every special occasion.
3. Tulip champagne glasses
As the name suggests, the tulip champagne glass is shaped like a tulip with a tapered top and wider bowl. The design easily captures the aroma of the champagne and ensures that the bubbles stay longer in the glass. Because the glass captures the aroma of the drink so well, it fits perfectly with more fruity champagnes. If you are looking for the best champagne cup to swirl your drink, the tulip shape glass will be the perfect option for you with its narrower top which contains the fragrance in the glass.
The perfect designer champagne glass for any occasion
For a really exclusive New Year’s table setting, why not serve refreshing drinks in gold rimmed champagne flutes? Or for something unique, make your next party memorable with coloured champagne flutes in pink. A modern champagne glass with a short stem may be a great choice for a more contemporary feeling. Crystal champagne glasses will give a real air of exclusivity to an occasion, whereas if you are looking for a more practical option, plastic champagne flutes won’t break or shatter for a picnic in the park. For a professional look, we recommend serving fancy glasses of champagne on an elegant tray from our selection.
Whether you are looking for wedding champagne flutes for your big day, or champagne cocktail glasses for a fun evening with friends, we can assure you that at Nordic Nest, you can buy the best luxury champagne glasses online with us.
How to clean champagne glasses
- Clean your glasses as soon as possible after use to avoid the champagne from drying which will make them more difficult to clean.
- Most champagne glasses are dishwasher safe but prefer a shorter program with a lower temperature. Always check what applies to your particular glass for champagne.
- Be sure to dry the glass immediately after washing to avoid stains and detergent residues that may affect the taste experience the next time you use the glass.
- Make sure that the cloth with which you dry the champagne glasses does not fluff so that there are no residues left until the next time the glasses are used.
- If you want the glass to shine properly, you can wash them in a mixture of warm water, a little detergent and a splash of ammonia.
How to store champagne glasses
Make sure that the glasses are stored with a good amount of space around them, so that they do not get worn out from them rubbing against each other.
