Riedel Sommeliers Montrachet 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 wine or liquor. This glass showcases the best characteristics of the finest full-bodied, moderately acidic Chardonnay wines, including Montrachet and Meursault wines from Burgundy and American Chardonnay. The generous bowl allows the rich bouquet to reveal all its layers of aroma. The wide rim directs the flow of wine to the edges of the tongue, which perceive sour flavors, allowing you to appreciate the balance of subtle acidity and luscious fruit flavors. 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. 17.6-oz. cap., 7 3/4" high.

I didn't believe Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru could get any better. It can with this glass. I am talking about all the senses.
This glass is delicate. Buy two Riedel polishing cloths to use in protecting 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, Easy to Clean, Appearance, Weight
Cons: Fragile, use care in handling

If you like to drink great Chardonnay like Far Niente, Cakebread, Caymas. You will Not believe that a glass and how its shaped will bring out all the flavors and aromas. Buy one and try it. I did, now I have them all and I taste test each wine in different glasses just to see how the flavor changes. life shouldn't be this much fun!
