This drink is scientifically validated! The double fermentation makes millions of bubbles tickle your nose just right. However, the Champagne experience (among other things) only flourishes in a specific glass.
How it's going:
There has been an overwhelming shift from the traditional Champagne flute to the Tulip-shaped Champagne glass. A tulip Champagne glass has a broadened bowl that allows suitable space for the bubbles to rise. In contrast, the slender opening enables the drinker to appreciate the lovely aromatic notes.
The shape of the tulip allows the carbonation to ideally rise to the top and tickle your nose with the budding aromas! It's best held from the stem rather than the bowl to avoid warming up our carbonated friend.
So, what to look for in a glass? Well, first, it's all about aesthetics. A glass made of crystal material gives a transparent view of millions of bubbles in your glass. Add a tapering at the lip to this crystal glass, and you've got yourself an aromatic dream! The perfect size glass sits somewhere around 6 to 7 oz. However, the majority of glasses are 8 ounces. Either way, a 4 oz pour or halfway gets you the right blend of bubbles + aromatic sensation!
