If you are looking for Champagne glasses with a nice story, you cannot ignore champagne coupe glasses. Although never officially confirmed, the story goes that these glasses were designed in 1751 for King Louis XV of France. The shape of the glasses is said to be based on the royal bust of his mistress. Of course, that is always an interesting story to tell your guests.
What matters most, of course, is that the glasses are perfect glasses for serving Champagne. Nowadays, however, other drinks, mainly cocktails, are also served in them. The traditional coupe glass has a capacity between 120 and 240 ml. Naturally, other sizes are also available.
Their wide shape with sturdy base is characteristic, but also ensures that champagne coupe glasses are also used in another way. Namely, these are stacking glasses with which you can make a champagne tower. Champagne coupe glasses are therefore the favourite glasses at many a festive occasion.

So are there any potential drawbacks? Purists will say that a coupe glass is not high enough to develop bubbles. As a result, this sensation may be somewhat diminished. A nice layer of foam may be missing and some also believe that this affects the aroma. But besides champagne coupe glasses, you can of course always include other Champagne glasses in your inventory. Like the well-known flute.
