Easily Aerate Your Wine with These Special Chevalier Glasses

People talk often about wine in knowing terms, without any knowledge to back it up. Even the experts often contradict themselves. But there are a few key ideas that hold true. For instance, aeration is really important. Allowing an earthy red wine to breathe helps to diminish the unpleasant smell of sulphites and unlock a greater range of flavors. With the Chevalier Stemless Aerating Wine Glass, you need only pour your drink to start this process. The unique design helps your favored vintage to oxidize, ready for your refreshment.

Easily Aerate Your Wine

People have been aerating wine for centuries, but the scientific explanation for this process is far more recent. There are two chemical processes that occur when you aerate wine.

Oxidation is when oxygen from the air combines with compounds in the wine. It releases fruity and nutty flavors that might otherwise stay locked away. The other process, evaporation, takes away the unpleasant smell of sulphites. These chemicals are used in the winemaking process, but they smell like rotten eggs. Not terribly appetizing, I think you will agree.

With the Chevalier wine glasses, you don’t need to give aeration a second thought. The design automatically pumps air into your wine, meaning you can enjoy the full flavor. It’s also much more stable than traditional glasses, so you’re less likely to stain the sofa.

A Breath of Fresh Air

The method by which the Chevalier glass aerates your wine is surprisingly simple. Inside the main vessel, there is what looks like a small sherry glass. As you pour the wine, this little container fills up. Around the base, small holes allow the wine to pour out into the main glass.

You can think of these wine jets as being like a waterfall. When any liquid falls at speed and hits a solid object, the air rushes in. In a waterfall, the white water at the base is filled with bubbles.

Don’t worry, the Chevalier won’t turn your Burgundy into Champagne. But it will release all the flavors listed on the label. Plus, you can even put a block of ice in the aerator for instant chill.
