Nowadays, with the rapid development of society, people pay more attention to the glass they use. It has become a basic common sense to drink what kind of wine they use, because different wines can fully reflect the flavor of the wine only by using different glasses.
Generally speaking, although the wine cup will not change the essence of the wine, its shape can determine the flow direction, smell, quality and intensity of the wine, thus affecting the aroma, taste, balance and aftertaste of the wine. The impact is amazing. Some people have done experiments. The same kind of wine is drunk with different glasses. Professional tasters even make mistakes and think it is different wine.Let me tell you which kind of wines are drunk with which glasses!
1.Bordeaux red wine
Because Bordeaux red wine has heavy acid and astringency, tulip cup shape with long cup length and not very vertical cup wall is required. Its cup mouth taper is relatively small, which can retain most of the bouquet. When the wine is imported, it will directly contact the middle and rear part of tongue flour, emphasizing tannin (bitter and astringent taste) while achieving a good balance between sweetness and acidity.
2. Burgundy (Pinot Noir/GamayNebbiolo )
Compared with the former, the Burgundy cup has a stout body, which can make the contact area between the wine body and the air larger, and the larger cup mouth can easily extend into the nose to feel the aroma. Usually this wine is considered suitable for wines with light style and complex and delicate aroma.
3. White Wine Cup
The straight body, which is closer to the "U" shape, has little demand for oxygen for lighter and fresher white wine. Its highlight lies in its subtle aroma. Therefore, the wine glasses of this type are often used to keep the fresh fruit flavor longer. Most importantly, compared with red wine glass, White Wine Cup will be smaller, making it easier for people to drink before the wine temperature rises.
Brandy cups are naturally imbued with an aristocratic flavor. Their rounded shape allows the fragrance of good wine to remain in the cups for a hundred years. When drinking, the root of the fingers of the hand and ring fingers are commonly used to clamp the cup handle, so that the hand temperature is introduced into the cup to slightly warm the wine, thereby increasing the tipsy feeling and fragrance.
Whisky cups have no legs and a large mouth, with a thick body. Feel free to add ice or water. In order to withstand the shaking and collision between the ice and the cup body. Usually choose a wide and thick cup.
Cocktail, Highball glass, sourglass, Commander, Margarita.
7. Sweet wine
For sweet wine, it is best to choose a cup with its opening like a petal, so that when drinking, the wine can flow directly to the sweet area on the tip of the tongue, giving full play to the sweetness of the fruit. This short cup is perfect for sweeter after-dinner wines, including naturally fermented sweet white wine and fortified port wine.
8. Champagne Wine Glass
High feet and slender cup body, slightly narrowed. Objective to make the beautiful golden bubbles in wine have a longer rising process and more beautiful lines. For champagne tower, a semi-circular dish goblet is used.
A glass that is pleasing to the eye and light and elegant enough will always make us feel better in experience. I believe everyone agrees with this point.
