which champagne glass to buy?

cyleater | Aug 16, 2006 05:33 PM

I'd like to buy a nice set of champagne glasses as an engagement present for a friend. The couple are beginning to develop their palate for wine and have started stocking up on Riedel glasses. Should I purchase Riedel flutes, or is it ok to buy something from Waterford, Lenox, Mikasa, etc? I wasn't sure if nice champagne glasses have similar requirements as nice wine glasses (ie, the material used, no etchings in the glass, etc)

Thanks for any insight.
