The best way to drink Champagne

the Antidote to... flat fizz

Riedel Champagne glasses

A Champagne toast is the way to mark any celebration. But forget the flute or the coupe, however stylish they may be: Champagne tastes way better from a proper Champagne glass, such as Riedel.

In a trialled tasting with Moet et Chandon, coupes reduced bubbles and flavour, while flutes were too narrow to allow the full aroma and flavour to be enjoyed (in fact, they became popular mainly  because they allow waiting staff to carry more glasses at once, on a tray).
