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 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.
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.
