Riedel's premier collection, the Sommeliers line, includes an impressive assortment of 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. This sparkling crystal glass is individually crafted by master artisans who perform every step of the glassmaking process by hand. Generous bowl provides breathing space and allows the aromas to unfold. Rim is precisely shaped to deliver the wine toward the front of the palate, which allows you to experience the well-balanced blend of acidity and supple tannins. The customized shape also enhances your appreciation of the wine's silky texture and prolonged finish. Hand made at the Riedel family's own glassworks in Austria, where artisans have been crafting exquisite glassware since 1756.
