Have you ever put Champagne or sparking wine into a red wine goblet? Chances are it didn’t taste or feel right. So you know why? Champagne flutes are elongated so the bubbles have a chance to rise for a long time. Shorter glasses leave less room for bubbles to rise, causing your wine to taste and feel flat.
There’s a reason why there are so many different kinds of wine glasses out there- they each allow the wine drinker to experience different varietals the way the vintner intended.
