Description

Manufacturer's Description Robert Parker, of The Wine Advocate; the worlds most respected wine guru said about Riedel: The finest glasses for both technical and hedonistic purposes are those made by Riedel.
The effect of these glasses on fine wine is profound.
I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make. About Riedel Glasses: Based in Austria, the Riedel family has been producing fine glassware for over 250 years, and is the worlds foremost manufacturer of high quality, wine specific stemware. Each glass is meticulously designed, in conjunction with wine makers and experts, to enhance the smell and taste of specific wines and spirits, thus increasing the enjoyment of drinking your favourite wine. Riedels glass-makers invest their talent, know-how and meticulous craftsmanship in making glasses of impeccable quality, balance and brilliance, either in over 24% lead crystal, or lead free crystal. Revered and admired by wine experts and producers the world over, Riedel is the inventor of the modern wine glass, and is the benchmark by which others set their standards. This glass was described by Decanter magazine as "The finest Burgundy glass of all time, suitable for both young and old Burgundies." Its shape, developed in 1958, represented a quantum leap in terms of wine glass design - and has earned it a place in the permanent display of the New York Museum of Modern Art.
This 'beautiful monster' of a glass can take apart a lesser wine, mercilessly showing up its weaknesses.
But a great wine - a top-class Burgundy, Barolo or Barbaresco - will be revealed in all its glory.
The large bowl allows the bouquet to develop to the full, while the slightly flared top lip maximizes the fruit flavors by directing a precise flow onto the front palate.
Certain wines and grape varieties require this type of controlled delivery.
By ensuring that the fruit is highlighted while using the marked acidity of the wine to keep the flavors in balance, this is a glass that produces a superbly three-dimensional 'taste picture'.
