Recommend to hand wash. The Riedel Sommeliers Montrachet / White Burgundy Wine Glass was designed for complex and dense white wines with high levels of alcohol and moderate acidity. The size of the bowl allows space for the rich bouquet to develop its range of aromas, while minimizing the risk of it becoming over concentrated. Recommended for: Burgundy (white), Chardonnay, Corton-Charlemagne, Meursault, Montrachet, Pouilly-FuissÃ©, St. Aubin.
The Montrachet appellation in Burgundy produces the world's finest and costliest dry white wines.
Their centuries-old reputation is based on Chardonnay grown in the unique microclimate and soil of these vineyards and vinified according to classic techniques. These wines are monumentally complex and dense, with high levels of alcohol and moderate acidity. The wide mouth of this generously shaped glass steers the wine mainly to the sourness-sensitive edges of the tongue, ensuring that the acidity is sufficiently emphasised to create a harmonious balance with the luscious fruit of the late-harvest, healthy grapes and the sweet toasty aromas of the wine's ageing in oak barrels.
The size of the bowl allows space for the rich bouquet to develop its superbly diverse range of aromas, while minimising the risk of it becoming over concentrated. Of course, outstanding Chardonnays from other regions and countries can also be enjoyed from this glass.
