How much store do others set by using the ‘right’ glass for their wine? Do you often find yourselves experimenting with the same wine in different glassware? I decided to have a play with a few options this evening with this bottle of Les Champauvins. The experiment was prompted by my being slightly disappointed with the wine - I found it more muted on the nose than expected (still perfectly good) so wondered if i might get more out of it by changing glasses.
Interestingly the answer was I might not! I found the nose pretty consistent across all three glasses, with small differences in the most emphasised aromas but general similarity in the intensity. Ultimately I had a slight preference for the largest glass (Riedel performance Pinot noir), which ironically is the one I started with.
Interested in the thoughts/experiences of others.
