In the 19th century,this second generation technique (in bottles) was completed and perfected. At first,high dosages of sparkling dessert wines were offered. It was not until around 1930 that the trend towards dry expansion began. The popularity of the bowl goes back to the time when champagne was exclusively drunk. The use of flutes also developed in parallel,so that to this day two traditional forms have been used to split the storage of the epicurean.
Riedel recommends the flutes form for dry champagne in order to emphasise the character of the high-quality base wines. In 1985,the vintage champagne glass was introduced,which,to a third,gives the bouquet space to unfold the exciting yeast-nut aroma and thus show the quality of the great champagne. The perlage in this glass is perceived as creamy and fine,the strong acidity softened by the dosage (approx. 12 g residual sugar). This glass form increases the pleasure,it gives the champagne a creamy,fruity overall impression.
