Champagne Glass – The Flute | 笛型

Champagne Glass – The Flute | 笛型

Flute is the most prevalent Champagne glass among the three. It is elongated with a surface area slightly smaller than a normal wine glass. Many of you may be aware of one of the very reasons of this design – the beads and aroma evaporate less rapidly as they travel a farther distance and have less space to escape. Another hidden reason is the narrow rim could prevent wine from spilling to the sides of a tongue, where sensitivity to acidity is heightened. So how about the other two? 

笛型香檳杯是三者中最普遍的一個。它是一只幼長的玻璃杯,然後配合比正常紅酒杯細小的表面面積。可能各位都猜到其中一個原因,就是氣泡和芳香需要較長時間上升及較少空間逃走,從而揮發得較慢。另一個鮮為人知的原因是窄的邊緣能夠防止香檳流向舌頭的兩邊,而這兩邊正是舌頭對酸味最敏感的地方。
