A Sterling Idea

Puiforcat's Champagne goblet

The first of its kind, Puiforcat's sterling silver Champagne goblet delivers design marvels and aesthetic pleasures in equal measure. Created under the guidance of master oenologist and noted Reims winemaker Bruno Paillard, the cup indulges the senses. Sterling's conductive qualities keep Champagne cool, a wide bulb allows it to breathe, and the indented neck concentrates the aroma. Lines engraved on the lip denote Champagne's three grape varietals: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. At the cup's bottom, a conical point pushes bubbles up in a geyser effect. Cost: $735.
