What are the types of champagne glasses?
Champagne glasses come in a range of shapes depending on what you’re looking for. Consider what suits your taste and style when deciding on the glass that’s right for you.
Flutes are the most popular with their elegant silhouette and a long handle that’s easy to hold. The elongated shape allows for good serving size and captures the bubbles at the base for a slower rise to the surface. Flutes are a classic choice when it comes to champagne glasses.
The tulip-shaped is a hybrid between a flute, a coupe, and a white wine glass. The glass was developed by sommeliers to trap aromas for optimal taste and to ensure that bubbles properly rise. These glasses are ideal for the connoisseur.
As legend has it, the coupe glass was molded from Marie Antoinette’s left breast. While the story is intriguing and they are a classically elegant glass, coupe glasses aren’t very effective at maintaining the champagne’s aromas and bubbles disappear very quickly. However, they are great for parties! Their shape also allows for them to be stacked like a pyramid and poured into like a fountain from the top.
Stemless glasses are a chic and contemporary choice that works well for both casual and formal occasions. The flute-shaped bowl maximizes the taste and aromas of the champagne, bringing out the best in each glass. Plus, stemless glasses are easy to hold and less likely to tip over, unlike their stemmed counterparts. The downside—chilled champagne will warm as you hold on to the glass.
Should we have a set of bride and groom champagne glasses (or a set for two grooms or two brides)?
Having a set of toasting flutes that are engraved with your names or initials and the date of the wedding can be a sweet keepsake to remember the day by. However, it’s a personal preference and certainly not mandatory. After all, it’s your big day—do it your way!
How many glasses of champagne are in a bottle?
A standard 750ml bottle of champagne has five to six full glasses. However, for a toast, you can fill up to seven glasses since the pour may not be as full.
