The ideal glass

The perfect glass is a fine glass champagne flute with tapered body and long stem.  The stem is for holding the glass without warming its contents, the tapered glass directs all the delicious fruity aromas to your nose, and the long glass allows you to appreciate the chains of bubbles as they stream steadily upwards. It should be spotlessly clean with no detergent residue or dust.
