Sommeliers Bordeaux Grand Cru

Sommeliers Bordeaux Grand Cru

This glass, first created in 1959, is not a design gimmick but a precision instrument, developed to highlight the unique characteristics of the great wines of Bordeaux. The large bowl (capacity 30 oz) brings out the full depth of contemporary wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Modern vinification techniques enable wine-makers to concentrate the fruit to such an extent that young wines may seem one-dimensional, tannic and over-oaked if served in smaller glasses. The Sommeliers Bordeaux Grand Cru gives breathing space to both young and more mature wines, unpacking the various layers of bouquet and delivering a full spectrum of aromas. On the palate, the texture of the wine - soft, silky, velvety - is intensified and the finish prolonged, gently blending acidity with supple, sweet tannins. This is a glass that showcases these majestically structured red wines in all their complexity and finesse.

All Riedel glasses are dishwasher proof according to DIN EN 12857-1/2:2005.

Bordeaux (red), Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Fronsac, Graves rouge, Listrac, Margaux, Médoc, Merlot, Moulis, Pauillac, Pessac Leognan (Rouge), Pomerol, St. Emilion, St. Estèphe, St. Julien

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic wine glass I bought these several months ago. They are fabulous....and beautiful. Every guest at our house has commented on how pretty the glasses are. I have bought a set of four for each of my sons. These are very fragile and must be washed very carefully.

how many come in the box? Is the name Riedel in script on the stem?

Asked by: darci
This item will arrive to you as one (1) Riedel glass. Since it is a Riedel Sommeliers glass (hand-made), it will display the Riedel stamp in script on the base of the glass. Regards, Riedel Customer Service
