The creme de la creme of luxury stems. The Riedel Sommeliers wine glass line is the top-of-the-line series of stemware from the legendary Riedel. Wine experts agree that glassware makes a profound difference on how wines taste. Riedel Sommeliers wine glasses are the benchmark and the most successful series of hand-made glasses in the world. Each Sommeliers wine glass is individually made of 24% lead crystal: the wine glass bowls are mouth-blown into a mould, the stem and base are handcrafted using ancient glass-making methods.Recommend to hand wash. The Riedel Sommeliers Sauternes / Dessert wine glass is designed to emphasize acidity of sweet wines, thus balancing the winea€s sweetness and luscious finish. The unusual curved design accentuates the apricot aromas typical of wines made from grapes affected by botrytis (a€˜noble rota€). Experts from around the world have hailed this wine glass to be ideal for Sauternes and sweet wines. Recommended for: Auslese, Beerenauslese, Trockenbeerenauslese, Eiswein, Sauternes, Tokaji.

This glass was originally developed in 1989 in collaboration with Hardy Rodenstock, described by the Wine Spectator as ‘the world's most extravagant wine collector'.

It was first issued as a glass for dry white wine as part of Riedel's mouth-blown HR1 collection. Ironically enough, tastings around the world have subsequently shown it to be the ideal glass for Sauternes and sweet wines. The unusual curved design accentuates the apricot aromas typical of wines made from grapes affected by botrytis (‘noble rot').

The glass is designed to emphasise acidity, thus balancing the wine's liquorous sweetness and luscious finish. This shape has now been added to our mouth-blown Sommeliers series as the Sauternes and dessert wine glass.

Recommended for: Ausbruch, Auslese, Barsac, Beerenauslese, Eiswein, Jurançon moelleux, Loupiac, Monbazillac, Picolit, Recioto di Soave, Quarts de Chaume, Sauternes, Tokaji, Trockenbeerenauslese, Vins Liquoreux.
