Glass style definitely affects the taste of champagne

I recently was invited by Helena Nicklin to join her in a champagne tasting of Billecart-Salmon’s NV Extra Brut and their 2004 Vintage champagnes. The intriguing difference in this tasting was that we would be using Billecart-Salmon’s specially designed wine glasses and compared the champagnes in both a traditional flute and Billecart’s specially designed glasses. Helena did a very good job of describing the technical notes on the tasting which you can find here.

We also did a video tasting of the two different champagnes, and whether or not glass style has any affect. See the videos below…

    Will have to keep an eye out for these two wines. I am quite fond of the NV and always drink my bubbles out of white wine glasses. As you said the wine is a lot more expressive than when drunk from a flute, and you want the maximum enjoyment you can get!

  2. Hi,

    Do you know where I can buy these new glasses? Either in your country or in Australia where I live?

    I’m used to shipping things so thats fine,

    Dale.

    • I think Harrods sells the gift box. However, I can check with Billecart and find out where exactly they sell them. I’ll let you know. Thanks for stopping by. :)
