Riedel Sommeliers Bordeaux Glass

Riedel's premier collection, the Sommeliers line, includes an impressive assortment of lead-crystal glasses, each developed by expert tasters to flatter a specific type of fine wine or liquor. This glass was designed for the great red wines of Bordeaux, including those made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes. The generous bowl provides breathing space and allows the aromas to unfold. The rim is precisely shaped to deliver the wine toward the front of the palette, which allows you to experience the well-balanced blend of acidity and supple tannins. The glass' shape also enhances your appreciation of the wine's silky texture and prolonged finish. Artisans at the company's family-owned factory in Austria craft this exquisite piece individually, performing every step of the glassmaking process by hand. We recommend washing by hand. 30.4-oz. cap., 10 3/4" high.

Beautiful Glass
November 15, 2010
I have four of these big, delicate and beautifully shaped glasses. They're extravagant, yes, but I love them. They are, however, extremely fragile. I recently cracked the bowl of one while drying it off by hand! I used just a touch too much pressure and it cracked. Surprisingly, the glass had a bit of flex to it and no pieces broke off. I'm going to replace it and add four more to my cabinet. Happy birthday to me, I guess.

Absolutely the best.If you love bordeaux wine,you knowthat you need the best tool.Try this glass with
great south african red (bordeaux style) too .You would love that.
Caution, do not drink and wash !
Wash it next day and use the riedel
cloth and wash it by yourself,or it will cost you some hundred $.and buy
first only two.If you need it for bigger
group switch to riedel vinum extreme
for claifornian or chilenian wine.

I received this glass from a friend, who enjoys wine, maybe as much as I do. This glass has an excellent nose and pour...I highly recommend it! I have about 6 different red glasses...this is my favorite. I hope to drink wine with her someday:)
