Fine elegance meets pure function with this Riedel Vinum Cognac Hennessy glass. This special stem features a fluted shape, offering a small evaporating surface, which helps to balance the aroma and taste while tempering the alcohol and emphasizing the bouquet. These glasses are made from 24% lead crystal by world-renowed European glassmakers. Each measures 7-1/4 inches high and has a 6-3/4 ounce full capacity.
Different opinions on the ideal cognac glass are as old as the drink itself. Even today, cognac is mainly served in wide tulip-shaped glasses - in spite of the disadvantages which this traditional shape has for the enjoyment of cognac.
The differences in colour, aroma and taste are the features by which the quality of a cognac is judged. The finely tuned shape of this glass harmonises the aroma and the taste, tempering the alcohol and the stringency of the palate and emphasizing the bouquet.
The flute-shaped glass allows its contents a very small evaporation surface. You will be surprised to detect no pungent fumes but delicately balanced aromas reminiscent of a summer meadow.
