Set of champagne glasses from Riedels series Vinum. Unlike Riedel's other grape-specific glasses, this is rather a drink-specific glass, as champagne is traditionally made from more than one type of grape.
The bowl of the champagne glass is pointy at the bottom which forms a stream of bubbles inside the glass, much like a pillar. The formation of bubbles is both beautiful and also extends the "life" of the champagne.
The wide part in the middle of the glass lifts the champagne's aromas and the tapered opening concentrates the scent to the nose. The opening directs the beverage to the front of the tongue, which gives an increased experience of sweetness. The wine glass also fits:
- Blanc de Blancs
- Other sparkling wines
