It seems like an odd thing to talk about, why a bottle's shape is as important as the wine inside. The same holds true for stemware. A champagne flute does a glass of bubbly a huge disservice and a Nebbiolo served in a large glass mitigates the bitterness of the tannin or spicy flavors. In the next tasting we'll bring out some wines to consider and the bottles that contain them. Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Alsace bottles will be represented plus the respective stemware. I can assure you there is much to learn in this tasting and of course the wine will be marvelous!
