A Guide to Glass­ware

Rules For The Modern Man - - Rules For The Modern Man -

Glass­ware is com­plex, but gen­er­ally speak­ing, it is de­signed to help wines breathe, to ex­press its aro­mas more thor­oughly. Heftier styles of wine re­quire more breath­ing space. Most whites are drunk young and re­quire smaller glass­ware, while dessert wines are well-aged and sweet by na­ture, thus served in smaller tast­ing glasses. Red wine glass­ware is the most com­plex, with var­i­ous re­gions or types of wines be­ing as­so­ci­ated with par­tic­u­lar glass shapes. Crys­tal­ware is ideal, both for its sonorous charm when toast­ing and be­cause it al­lows the drinker to ap­pre­ci­ate the claret of wine.
