The coup glass was made by Mr. Yutaro Kimura, managing director of Kimura Glass store.
“Coupe” means “glass with a wide mouth, shallow bottom with stems” in French. Coupe Grass is also called saucer champagne glass.
Recently in Japan, slender flute-type glasses are the most popular. But until a while ago Coupe glasses were often used. If we go further back, when noble culture was prosperous in Europe, it has always been used in the society of nobles. Perhaps the glass was produced from the logic to taste, but that it has been used for many years, I think that it may have been continued to be used after all because it is delicious to drink in this form.
If you want to drink while analyzing the taste, it is better to have a plump and swollen wine glass type that has a plump mouth, but you do not need to analyze the taste and if you really want to enjoy the taste of champagne, coup glass, Is the BEST.
In the case of the wine glass type as shown in the figure, it is a style to drink while analyzing the taste by collecting the aroma (though there are also cases, of course). I feel that something is delicious with my head. In the case of coup grass, let the air open from the large open mouth casually, put the scent around the glass, and taste it while feeling the scent, it becomes such a fun way. I think that the taste comes into nature and I feel “normal” and delicious with an honest feeling.
Recently, it is also a story that producers of champagne have started to send requests to customers and drinkers that they do not want to use flute types when drinking champagne. Certainly, the maker’s desire to fully enjoy it is precisely because of the extravagant things that are made over a long period of time after many steps.
The bottom of the part where the liquid of glass enters is made to be as flat as possible. It is calculated that the same liquid area can be maintained even if the content is reduced by advancing to this level. If the liquid level is large, the aroma will also spread. If you can enjoy champagne while being wrapped in a plump scent forever.
I think that the pleasant memory and image when I drank the liquor is easier to associate with the scent than the taste, and I think it would be nice if the time I spent deliciously and happily was linked to the scent and left in the memory.
Speaking of champagne is a symbol of elegance. It is also elegance when it comes to drinking. In addition, how to face champagne that “slowly enjoy the taste” is an important place that leads to elegance. It is something that I say elegance by myself … but entering from the shape is also a point to stimulate the feeling, and if the feeling changes, the taste changes too! How about holding such a glass?
Holding the bowl makes the glass stable and easy to drink. The fingers are aligned gently and it looks cool if the back of the hand is visible to the other side. As it is a bowl part that is a little big for women, it will be easier to hold the bowl part as it wraps around the stem base. If you have a stem, it will be unstable and it may be spilled even with a few glories because the liquid level is wide. It is easy to look cool and to hold the bowl smoothly.
Please try the champagne experience with coup glass.
