The Champagne is the northernmost wine region of France. From the beginning the lime-stone grounds and the climate produced white wines which tended to sparkle.
In the 19th century this technique of the second fermentation (in bottles) was finished and perfectioned. At first there were only sweet sparkling dessert wines due to the high dosage. But it took until 1930 when the trend started to mature these wines sweetly. The popularity of the bowl leads back to the time when Champaign was only enjoyed sweetly. The use of the Flute developed parallel so that until nowadays there are two traditional designs which separate the connoisseurs.
Riedel recommends the Flute-design for dry Campaigns to emphasize the valuable character of the basic wines. In 1985 the vintage Champaign glass was introduced which, when filled one third, gives space to the bouquet to unfold the exciting yeast-nut aroma and therefore to show the quality of the great Champaign. The sparkling appears creamy and fine in this glass and the powerful acid is being reduced by the dosage (app. 12g rest-sugar). This glass design emphasizes the pleasure and gives the Champaign a creamy, fruity overall impression
