But for a party we serve champagne from flutes. I'd like to have more coupes, but they're hard to find. And then I'd have to trust other people not to spill. emalove 6 years Flute...it's more elegant for sure. aimeeb 6 years Flute! BOBCAT 6 years YUMMY!! PINK BUBBLY FOR ME IN A BEAUTIFUL BEVELLED GLASS FLUTE! macchiatolove 6 years I prefer the flute. I think it's easier to spill in a coupe :) eshellmoyer 6 years I second that danaruth. I have to tip my head all the way back to drink the second half of my champagne from a flute, which hardly makes me feel elegant. Also, I like the story about how the coupe was modeled after Marie Antoinette's breast, because it's so silly. danaruth 6 years I love champagne, but I have a big nose and it makes drinking out of a flute difficult. The bigger bowl of the coupe lets me get closer to the champagne so I can smell it first. Honest to goodness truth. ElizabethRae 6 years I love both a lot. I don't know why, they're just so beautiful! Flutes are harder to spill, but I got a set of coupes for Christmas that I l-o-v-e. I think it's a tie. HoneyBrown1976 6 years Flutes, thank you! Modus-Vivendi 6 years Agreed, flute! Because I think it makes it taste better, and I'm less likely to spill. ilanac13 6 years i'm a flute person. i don't know - i like the classic ways of doing things sometimes. dootsie 6 years For the people who don't know what the difference would be... A flute keeps the carbonation in better and concentrates the flavor so that each sip is a punch in the mouth. A coupe lets out carbonation and concentrates the taste, but allows one to savor the smell and gives a lighter taste. neonbee 6 years I don't really care, but I like the look of champagne in a flute. bjg007 6 years flute lily_xx 6 years A flute! I'm actually pretty passionate about this. Champagne is my favorite drink and it just doesn't have the same allure when it's not served in a flute. :) LoveSarah 6 years Flutes hold more, and it's harder to spill them! :) itsme3683 6 years mswender, i was thinking the same! plus, in a coupe, it feels so top-heavy I'm afraid I'm going to spill. miss-malone 6 years Either one, I think they are both very elegant :) mswender 6 years I am a very technical! mswender 6 years A flute is mush better for champagne, keeps the bubbles and all that science of wine stuff celebrity_soup 6 years a coup, only because i've never drank from one. :P CoconutPie 6 years I have always preferred flutes. They feel more elegant. **It's coupe, not coup.
