Wine glass of tulip-shape: Baccarrat claims it improves the taste of wine

French glassmaker is hoping to revolutionise the experience of drinking wine with a new design that promises to settle the age-old argument between alcohol and the grape.

The tulip-shaped glass, with a wide flat base and a vertical “chimney”, will prevent the alcohol from overpowering the aroma of wine when the glass is swirled, according to Baccarat, a maker of luxury crystal glassware.

The design prevents the usual large-scale swirling movement which oxidises the wine and burns off the delicate aromas, and retains the subtlety in the vintages, the firm said.

A must try for the wine connoisseurs, these ergonomically designed wine glasses flaunt a $116 price tag and went on sale in France earlier this year. They were also launched in China and Hong Kong last month.
