b) The best champagne glass in the world
"In success you deserve it and in defeat, you need it,"
Winston Churchill understood the true value of Champagne
"I drink Champagne when I win, to celebrate. And I drink Champagne when I lose, to console myself"
Napoleon Bonaparte, 18th century French conqueror (1769 to 1873)
"My only regret in life is that I did not drink more Champagne."
John Maynard Keynes, American writer (1883 to 1946).
THE RICHARD JUHLIN CHAMPAGNE GLASS has been designed by the world's number one champagne expert Richard Juhlin.
The importance of the quality of the flute cannot be over-emphasized. The extra money you pay to drink finer champagne and wine is totally wasted if you do not have access to the right quality glassware.
The Juhlin Champagne glasses are not only beautifully designed non-lead crystal, but due to their unique design they bring out the scent in an exceptional way, enabling the achievement of an optimal smell, sensation and taste experience.
The ideal Champagne glass must allow the wine to be swirled to release the aromatics, but with a small opening to collect them.
The flute-style shape is crucial in keeping the temperature low and retaining the bubbles, and hence the long, relatively narrow glass design, with a bulbous mid-section, which is wider than both the opening, and the base of the glass.
When comparing the Juhlin Champagne glass to the very best glasses made by other top brands, the Juhlin flute far surpasses its competitors in tastings, with regard to the nose, the palate, and also the flavor retention over time.
The Juhlin flute, therefore is something of a hybrid - tall and thin to preserve the all-important fizz, but bulbous in the middle, providing sufficient surface area to maximize the aromas.
Compared with the market- leading flute, it offers a more attractive and complex nose.
The difference is truly remarkable, which is why the Juhlin glasses have received excellent reviews in industry publications and why several of the leading champagne houses have become devoted users.
The Juhlin glass allows you to get the best out of each and every glass of champagne
"I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes, I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it if I am; Otherwise I never touch it - unless I'm thirsty."
Madame Bollinger, one of the "grande dames" of French champagne (1884 -1977)
