An improvement on the classic champagne coup̩, this stem gently brings the sides of the cup upward and in, concentrating the bouquet on vintaged champagnes and spumante. A flute is great for an aperitif, a simple chardonnay or prosecco based sparkler. But remember, a really good champagne or spumante is first, an excellent wine and then the bubbles are added. Because it is an excellent wine, it has a bouquet and by tapering up the sides of this stem, the bouquet is focused for you to enjoy. If you love high quality vintaged sparklers from Italy or France, we urge you to try this stem.
