This was particularly common in the 19th century Champagne glass in the form of a flat bowl. According to legend, it is the breast of the French queen Marie-Antoinette (1755-1793) reproduced. Other women are also mentioned. The actual design for the bowl-shaped glass is made by the French author and satirist Marquis de Saint-Evremond (1610-1703) attributed to the popularity and spread of the champagne has earned great merit. However, it is not optimally suitable for sparkling wine because the carbonated beads and flavors evaporate too quickly due to the large surface area of the liquid. The narrow high Flûte is much more suitable for this. Champagne purists claim that the only useful use for the coupe is one Champagne pyramid to build and then enjoy the poured sparkling wine as quickly as possible.
