Picking the Right Wine Glasses      
  drinking fun · a guide to wine · glasses

   You found the perfect bottle of wine for your special occasion. Choosing the appropriate stemware can complete the experience.While many of the details of stemware are subject to personal preferences, there are a few general rules that can serve as a guide.

   Typically, larger, wider glasses are used for reds, while the smaller ones are used for whites and desert wines. The tall, slender glasses (known as champagne flutes) are for... You guessed it, Champagne and Sparkling Wines. For the more ambitious wine drinker, there are many different types of glasses that are specifically designed to enhance the flavors of different wines. These are the most common.
Use For: Burgundy (red), Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir
The larger balloon shape of the glass enhances the complex aromas and flavors of these wines.
Use For: Bordeaux, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot
Slightly smaller and more narrow than the Burgundy glass, the Bordeaux is suited to simpler reds.
Use For: Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris
This moderatedly sized glass is typically the larger of the white wine glasses. Its shape is well suited to crisp, flavorful white wines.
Use For: Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, Semillion, Riesling
The smaller of the white glasses, the Sauvignon glass is a perfect compliment to sweeter whites and desert wines.
Use For: Champagne, Vintage Champagne, Sparkling Wine
The tall narrow shape of a flute helps preserve the flavor and bubbles of a fine champagne. It enhances the bouquet and flavor of sparkling wines as well.
