Saying farewell to Wine group “Latour” with a Champagne tasting
What are those glasses? One looks like a Zalto, but I'mnot sure about the other.
Hi Ned,Yes – one of them is Zalto and the other one is from Spiegelau’s hand made series : Adina ”White wine”. I took a picture – here http://picasaweb.google.com/Togathomas/MadAboutWineDiverse#5326668410783648418This is the typical set-up I use when I open a Champagne and especially these very young and vinous Champagne, which presents themselves better in a white wine glass than a flute. I wouldn’t call Zalto a classic flute, but the “Adina” glass has a much larger bowl. In addition the Adina glasses are polished in a way where they actually holds the mousse rather well. But nothing beats Zalto on the palate – the Champagnes are always super electrical and fresher in Zalto and you get a better mineral feel. /Thomas
