Riedel Riedel Sommeliers Burgundy Grand Cru, Single Stem

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. Visually impressive, this gigantic glass is on permanent display at New York's... Museum of Modern Art for its innovative design, which was developed in 1958. The glass is specifically shaped to highlight the fruit in certain red wines--Burgundy Grand Cru, Barbaresco, Barolo, Beaujolais Grand Cru, Blauburgunder, red Burgundy, Gamay, Nebbiolo, and Pinot Noir--while using the acidity for balance, presenting a three-dimensional flavor. The glass has the unique ability to enhance the taste of an outstanding wine and also to reveal any weaknesses in a lesser quality wine. The large bowl allows room for the wine's rich bouquet to unfold. The flared lip emphasizes the fruitiness of the wine by directing the wine to the front of the palate. The glass weighs a substantial 14 ounces and holds 37 ounces of wine. It stands 9-3/4 inches high with a 4-3/4-inch wide bowl. read more
