Riedel Sommeliers Loire Wine Glass

Riedel's premier Sommeliers collection includes an impressive assortment of lead-crystal glasses, each developed by expert wine tasters to flatter a specific varietal. The company's search for the perfect Sauvignon Blanc glass involved hundreds of expert tasters from around the world. The result is this award-winning glass, perfect for grassy Loire wines. Its tall, slender bowl highlights fruit and floral components while directing the flow of wine toward the front palate to balance fruit flavors and acidity. In addition to Sauvignon Blanc, the shape of this glass also complements Loire (Blanc), White Bordeaux, Chenin Blanc, Fume Blanc and Gewurztraminer. Artisans at Riedel's family-owned factory in Austria craft each exquisite piece individually, performing every step of the glassmaking process by hand. Hand-washing is recommended. 12.25-oz. cap., 9 1/4" high.

All the Sommeliers series glasses enhance sight, fragrance and taste. You have to experience one to appreciate.
This glass is delicate. Buy two Riedel polishing cloths to use for drying this fragile investment.
Stem snap can occur through mishandling as in torque or bend pressure at the stem. Use two Ridel polishing cloths to clean. Don't overfill the glass .... 3-5 oz. maximum.
Pros: Quality
Cons: Fragile
