Riedel Vinum Cognac Glass, Set of 2

Experts with the world's most discerning palates helped develop Riedel's Vinum series, a collection of glasses designed to flatter specific types of wines and liquors. These elegant lead-crystal glasses showcase the best qualities of cognac and other fine brandies, including Armagnac and Calvados. The tall, narrow bowl brings out the delicate bouquet of caramel and perfumed fruit, while understating the high alcohol content. The flared rim delivers the flow of liquid to those areas of the tongue that allow you to appreciate the harmonious balance of spiced wood and luscious fruitiness. A family-owned company since 1756, Riedel produces the machine-made Vinum series at its factory in Germany. Dishwasher safe. 6.8-oz. cap., 7 1/4" high. Set of two.

Appropriate Stemware makes the Difference
October 9, 2012
For those who can appreciate how the appropriate stemware can make your wine really reveal itself, this Cognac or after dinner licquor glass is strongly recommended. While in Napa this year, at one of the wineries, we were served an Ice Wine in these glasses and the flavors really stood out. We were explained that because of the way the mouth of the glass is flared out, makes the wine pour towards the forward part of the palate which is where the tongue tastes sweetness, and I can now says that is true. I know these glasses are recommended for Cognac, but if you also enjoy some Dessert wines or Ice wine, I strongly recommend these glasses. Cheers!

A thing of beauty is a joy forever
October 6, 2011
My fiancé and I registered for these glasses for our wedding, part of a whole suite of Reidel Vinum glasses. These, I think, are my favorite of the lot. They are beautifully made, and beautiful to look at. Riedel is known for making stemware that brings out the attributes of the wine, and these are, indeed, perfect for cognac. As of this review, Williams-Sonoma is only offering these glasses online (carrying the signifcantly more expensive Sommelier line in-store), and there is rumor that they will stop carrying them altogether, so grab them while you can.
Pros: Quality, Good for Entertaining, Size, Appearance, Weight
Cons: Fragile
