Some champagne history. The champagne coupe is a shallow, broad-bowled, saucer shaped stemmed glass generally capable of containing 4 to 8 US fl oz (120 to 240 ml) of liquid. Legend has it the shape of the coupe was modeled on the breast of Marie Antoinette, but the glass was designed especially for sparkling wine and champagne in England in 1663.
The coupe was fashionable in France from its introduction in the 1700s until the 1970s, and in the United States from the 1930s to the 1980s. The coupe was also fashionable at American weddings in the 1920s. Where “champagne towers” were created by stacking coupes in pyramidal forms. Champagne was continuously poured into the top glass; as it overflowed, it trickled down to fill every glass below.
The broad surface area of the mouth of the coupe allows champagne to lose its carbonation more quickly, and the curved, short bowl does not provide nearly as dramatic visual effect for bubbles as the flute. The coupe also has a relatively short stem (compared to some champagne flutes), which encourages the drinker to seize the bowl. This transfers heat to the champagne, warming it more quickly than in a flute.
