Wine Smarts

My sister got me Wine Smarts Volume 1 for Christmas. It's kind of like a multiple-choice Trivial Pursuit all about wine. I thought I would spread my wine learnings with one its questions:

What is generally considered the inspiration for the original champagne "coupe" glass?

  • A - The widow Clicquot's knee
  • B - Marie Antoinette's breast
  • C - A fully-blooming gardenia
  • D - The top of Dom Perignon's bald head

And the answer is (highlight this text and the space beyond to see):B - Marie Antoinette's breast
