The right glass, for example, is also decisive for the taste – for juices as well as for wines. Much has been said and written about the shape of the glass and also about the type and thickness of the glass used. The most important point, however, is that a more bulbous glass that tapers towards the top bundles the aromas of the juice and transports them to the nose. That intensifies the effect on the nose and triggers more intensive enjoyment, because around 90 percent of our taste impressions come not from the tongue but from the nose.
The stem is especially important. Long-stemmed glasses ensure that the recommended drinking temperature – between 8 and 12 degrees centigrade – can be maintained and that the aromas can develop their full potential.
