Matched for wine
Like the tea ceremony, professional tea sets can bring out the fragrance of tea leaves incisively and vividly. The same is true for wine tasting. Pairing with a good wine glass can elevate the level of wine tasting.
The shape of the wine glass can determine the flow direction of the wine and the intensity of the aroma. When the wine glass is pushed close to the lips, the taste buds begin to be fully alert, and when the flow of the wine is directed to the appropriate taste sensing area, a variety of different taste sensations are also produced. When the tongue comes into contact with wine, three kinds of information are released immediately, that is: temperature, texture and flavor of wine… Generally, when eating western food, there are several large and small cups in front of them. In fact, this is for drinking. Equipped with different wines. To drink red wine, choose a glass with a bigger belly, because red wine needs to be in contact with oxygen in order to fully release the aroma of the wine. If it is an aged red wine, it is necessary to use a large glass, which can quickly dissipate the stale smell stored all the year round and avoid disturbing the mellow aroma of the wine.
In the white wine glass, the belly and the mouth of the glass are too small, so that the aroma of the wine is easy to gather, and the aroma will not be dissipated too quickly. The slender cup is used to drink champagne, you can appreciate the process of rising bubbles slowly, the big cup has no such “beauty”. For dessert wine, it is best to choose a wine glass whose mouth opens like a petal, so that when drinking, the wine can flow directly to the sweetness area on the tip of the tongue.
