SKU: Riedel 4400/07
Description

Amazon.com Handmade of mouth-blown full-lead crystal, this wine glass is from Riedel's top-of-the-line Sommeliers collection and is for those who take their wine seriously.
The classic design is understated enough for an after-work glass of wine and elegant enough to dress a holiday table.
The glass is specifically shaped to balance the fruit and acidity in white wines such as Chardonnay, Montrachet, white Burgundy, New World Chardonnay, Pouilly-Fuisse, and Meursault.
The wide mouth is intended to draw wine to the edges of the tongue, which are more sensitive to sourness.
The wide bowl gives room for the wine's rich bouquet to unfold without becoming too intense.
Each glass weighs a substantial 11 ounces and holds 17-3/4 ounces of wine.
It stands 7-7/8 inches high with a 4-inch wide bowl.

From the Manufacturer A Glass Is Not Just a Glass The Content Determines the Shape Riedel's belief when it comes to develop a shape is that design ideas are not born on a drawing board but shaped by trial and error with the help and support of the world’s greatest palates.
A person interested in wine is led by color, bouquet, and taste.
He often does not consider the glass--used as an instrument to convey the message of the wine.
Over the years we have acquired some interesting scientific explanations as to why the shape of a glass so influences the bouquet and taste of alcoholic beverages. The first discovery was made while enjoying wine.
The same wine seemed completely different, when served in a variety of glasses--so much so that experienced connoisseurs were made to believe that they were tasting a different wine.
In the next step, Riedel was able to determine shapes in which the wine seemed to improve.
The grape variety is the key factor determining the relationship between fruit, acidity, tannin, and alcohol in wine.
We started to recognize the complicated role played by size and shape in conveying the message of a fine wine. The Influence of Size and Shape on Alcoholic Beverages Bouquet The quality and intensity of aromas are determined by the personality of a wine and the relative affinity of the glass shape.
Bouquet can only develop in a range of temperatures.
Low temperatures temper the intensity, whereas high temperatures push mainly alcoholic fumes.
When describing the importance of the glass shape we assume that the right serving sizes (white wine: 2-3 ounces; red wine: 3-5 ounces) and temperatures are respected.
When wine is poured out, it starts to evaporate and the aromas quickly fill the glass in layers according to their density and specific gravity.
The lightest vapors are at the rim, the heaviest on the bottom.
Consequently the size and the shape of the glass can be fine-tuned to the typical aromas of a grape variety: The lightest, most fragile aromas are those which resemble flower and fruit aromas.
Slender, egg-shaped glasses emphasize this kind of aroma.
The middle is filled with green vegetal aromas and earthy mineral components.
The heaviest aromas are those of wood and alcohol.
When swirling the glass, the wine moistens additional surface which increases the evaporation and intensity of the aromas.
However, it does not allow layers of bouquet to blend together.
It is for this reason that the different qualities of aroma noted in a variety of glasses are amazing.
(The same wine may have fruit aromas in one glass and green and vegetal herbiness in another).
To eliminate this effect, you would have to move the layers vertically a
