Stylish, fine, elegant – exactly what a champagne glass should look like. It should rest lightly in the hand and be made from crystal-clear glass in order to avoid dulling or adulterating the sparkling beads.

The history of the champagne glass
A fine champagne glass is just as important for enjoying champagne as the beverage itself. Looking back at the development of the champagne glass, it is very similar to that of the sparkling wine glass. In the 17th century, the vessel of choice for this effervescent sparkling wine was still the large champagne saucer or coupe. It was only in the late 20th century that the self-declared experts began to recognise the disadvantages of the saucer. Not only does it fail to direct the fine bouquet towards the nose, you can’t see the champagne beads well either.
Due to its broad shape, the champagne saucer also rests awkwardly in the hand: the temperature of the drink – which is supposed to be chilled – quickly rises, thus dampening the enjoyment of it. That said, the coupe does possess the ideal shape for a champagne pyramid, although it is far better to drink the wine from a different type of glass.

A narrower champagne glass for maximum enjoyment
The champagne flute is much more suitable, for example. Its narrow shape widens as it ascends, which transports the sparkling aromas of the champagne exactly where they are supposed to go: towards the nose. The perlage is given a much better opportunity to develop properly and the effervescence is easy to perceive.
The champagne tulip, however, goes one step better. Its special shape means that the varied aromas of the champagne congregate perfectly and are directed towards the nose. The reason is that the tulip glass initially widens in the same way as the flute, but becomes narrower at the top in order to concentrate the aromas. Our champagne glass is based on the ideal tulip shape and stands out for its timeless, simple design.
