This glass was described by Decanter magazine as "The finest Burgundy glass of all time, suitable for both young and old Burgundies." Its shape, developed in 1958, represented a quantum leap in terms of wine glass design - and has earned it a place in the permanent display of the New York Museum of Modern Art. This 'beautiful monster' of a glass can take apart a lesser wine, mercilessly showing up its weaknesses. But a great wine - a top-class Burgundy, Barolo or Barbaresco - will be revealed in all its glory. The large bowl allows the bouquet to develop to the full, while the slightly flared top lip maximises the fruit flavours by directing a precise flow onto the front palate. Certain wines and grape varieties require this type of controlled delivery. By ensuring that the fruit is highlighted while using the marked acidity of the wine to keep the flavours in balance, this is a glass that produces a superbly three-dimensional 'taste picture'.

Ideal for following grapes:Barbaresco, Barolo, Beaujolais Cru, Blanc de Noirs, Burgundy (red), Chambolle Musigny, Champagne, Echezeaux, Franciacorta, Musigny, Nebbiolo, Nuits Saint Georges, Palomino (Sherry), Pinot Noir New World, Pinot Noir Old World, Pommard, Romanee Saint Vivant, Rose Champagne, Santenay, Volnay, Vosne-Romanee, Vougeot

Riedel makes it possible to fully appreciate all the nuances of aromas and tastes from the best wines of the world." -Michel Bettane

Varietal Specific Designs

The Riedel glass designs are based on the exceptional characteristics of each grape variety, which in turn determines the shape, size and rim diameter of the bowl. The latest machine blown technology, in conjunction with the seamless pulled stem, offers a special design feature "architecture", which creates an indent in the bottom of the bowl, reflecting the light and adding another dimension to the lively color of wine.

Crystal Classics is one of the largest independent retailers of Riedel glasses in the U.S.
