The exculsive Sommeliers Bordeaux Grand Cru gives breathing space to both young and more mature wines, unpacking the various layers of bouquet and delivering a full spectrum of aromas. On the palate, the texture of the wine – soft, silky, velvety – is intensified and the finish prolonged, gently blending acidity with supple, sweet tannins. This is a glass that was designed to showcase these majestically structured red wines in all their complexity and finesse, first created in 1959. The large bowl (capacity 30 oz) brings out the full depth of contemporary wines made from Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Artisans at the company's family-owned factory in Austria craft this exquisite piece individually, performing every step of the glassmaking process by hand. Riedel is committed to bringing you the world's premier wine glasses which deliver the wine to your palate in a way that enhances and accentuates the wine's enjoyable complexities.
