How to choose a white wine glass?
A white wine glass is generally smaller than a red wine glass. The chalice of the glass and the opening are rather small, because white wine does not need to be aerated as much as red wine. In general, white wine is often served in glasses with a slightly domed chalice to allow better preservation of the fruity aromas and freshness of the wine. It’s better to favour a conical or tulip shape and choose a wider or narrower opening depending on the type of white wine. For example, Chardonnay requires a large opening for good oxygenation, whereas light whites will prefer a narrower neck to concentrate the aromas on the nose.
It is important to choose see through glasses. Fully coloured glasses may look good on a table but the tasting experience is not optimal. This is because the tinted glass prevents the colour of the wine from being fully appreciated. And this colour, also known as the robe, can be used to estimate the age of the wine, whether it has been filtered (or not) and whether it contains deposits. These details are important to tasters.
As white wines tend to have a fruitier taste, they are rarely stored in oak barrels for very long. For this reason, it is not usually necessary for a white wine to be heavily aerated. The right white wine glass does not necessarily have to be large in diameter, as only the fruity notes of the wine should be highlighted.
White wines that are slightly acidic need a glass with a very rounded outer rim. This allows the wine to reach the tip of the tongue first and thus bring out the sweetness. This ensures that the sweetness of the wine is perceived first, rather than the acidity.
In contrast, white wines that have matured in wood need a slightly larger white wine glass. A larger wine glass allows the complexity of the aromas to develop better.
People who like to drink highly aromatic white wines should definitely drink them in a large, wide glass. With very aromatic wines, the aromas do not need to be preserved as much. The large chalice and the wide opening of the glass will help the wine's aromas to develop.
No dessert is complete without a very good sweet wine. Sweet wines are often served in smaller volumes in the glass. For this reason, it is logical to choose a smaller glass for sweet wine. In order to enjoy these wines optimally, the opening should be a little narrower at the top so that the aromas are concentrated in the best possible way.
