There is evidence suggesting that drinking out of champagne flutes can actually make sparkling white wine taste better. When champagne is being consumed, the bubbles come out of the glass and burst. This in turn produces the taste and smell of the drink while the person is enjoying it. A study from France has discovered that the shape of champagne flutes causes the bubbles to mix together at a higher rate, which leads to more flavour being present when the champagne is being consumed. When using a different type of wine glass
, the bubbles are more spread out and, therefore, the flavour of the sparkling white wine isn't as intense.
