Glasses of champagne and a mini gold disco ball on a table

Champagne glasses for every budget, from $3 to $375

Whether you prefer coupes or tulip-shaped, we’ve found the right Champagne glass for you.

From the famous flute to the ancient blida, sparkling wine has traditionally been enjoyed in a range of glass types. The drink tends to be associated with toasting, so the instruments can’t be overlooked – and they’re often designed with a celebratory flair.

As a general rule, the official Comité Champagne recommends “a tall, bulbous glass with a narrow top, shaped like a tulip. Your Champagne will then be able to deploy all its aromas and fine bubbles.” Flutes and coupes are a more popular choice, and well-made ones will similarly highlight aromatics and carbonation. Famed sommelier Aldo Sohm recommends a wine glass, to give the drink more room as climate change leads to richer-tasting wines – but he’s a fan of the tulip shape as well.

For budget-watchers or big spenders, these are some champagne glasses worth raising.
