Gauged glass

What is better than to savor a good wine like a Chardonnay, a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Pinot Gris or a Sauvignon Blanc wine before dinner? Of course, finding the wine glass which is suited to appreciate the different grape varieties and aromas is a must! The elegant gauged wineglasses featured on Az boutique could be exactly what you need in your glassware set!

The golden rules of wine tasting

 Any oenologist or connoisseur will confirm this one golden rule: having the correct wine glass and pouring the right volumes are a must if you want to fully appreciate any type of wine whether it a burgundy wine, a chardonnay wine or a rose wine ! In order to elevate the flavors of any type of wine it is a must to aerate it. Generally if you want the wine to be fully aerated you should only pour wine only till the widest part of the bowl. Of course it can be demanding to do with the naked eye. The gauged wineglass could hence be exactly what you need! With its discreet measurement mark  which will guide you to fill your wine glass to the correct amount: you will never over-pour your glass!

Hence the gauged wineglass will undeniably influence the perception that you will have of your wine at all sensory levels including the visual appearance, olfactory stimulation and taste! Whether it a balloon wine glass, a tulip wine glass, a crystal wine glass, the gauged wine glass will enhance the bouquet, flavours, acidity and sweetness of the wine

The art of wine serving

 If wine tasting is an art, same goes to the wine service! Savor your wines by pouring your wine up the widest part of the glass bowls! If you turn your glass in a circular motion, the molecules will break against the bowl and thus release the aromas perfectly! If you want to enjoy a good glass of red wine such as a Burgundy wine or a Châteauneuf-du-Pape A.O.C for example, it should be tasted at an adequate temperature of 14 ° C. To best savor a white wine glass, the temperature should be 8 °C.

The gauged wine glass is perfect for professionals serving wine by the glass. You can easily check if you have poured the correct amount of wine in one look.

If you want to further oxygenate your wine, you can also pour your wine bottle in a wine decanter or wine carafe before serving! This process will allow the wine to "open up". Indeed, the decanter is an excellent wine aerator allowing the aromas of the wine to be released!

Choosing the correct wine glass

 The wine glass is generally made of four parts: the rim (the upper part which touches the lips), the bowl (the vessel holding the wine), the stem, and the base to allow your wine glass to stand up. The size and shape of the rim, the bowl and the stem greatly influence our tasting experience and it is essential to choose the correct wine glass shape.

If you are a fond of of great red wines such as pinot noir or burgundy wines choose a a wine glass with a wide rim and a large bowl to allow the wine to aerate better. If you are more of a white wine addict such as Muscat, Chardonnay or Viognier, choose a straighter, upright bowl with a smaller rim.
The ideal way to appreciate a great vintage. The ideal to better appreciate a great vintage! The wine glass rim should also also allow an optimal olfactory reading of the wine.
