Celebrating Riedel Sommeliers Glass Collection 40th Anniversary!

Some of the finest and most expensive dry white wines are made from this grape variety, a native of the Burgundy region which is now grown in almost all wine-producing regions worldwide.

In the New World, especially, Chardonnay's popularity stems from its creamy structure, which balances oaky, buttery flavours with low acidity. The variety produces wines of high alcoholic content, often aged in small oak barrels. Winemakers sometimes add tartaric acid to adjust for its low acidity.

The Chardonnay glass is designed so that this low acidity is delivered in a way that sets off the alcohol and rich flavours of the wine, highlighting its velvety, supple texture, emphasising the fruit and ensuring a long, balanced finish. This classic Riedel shape allows young wines to express all their invigorating freshness, while more mature wines are encouraged to deliver the nutty spicy, mineral flavours so typical of the variety.

WHITE BORDEAUX

Some of the finest classic white Bordeaux wines are made in the Graves region, where a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes grown in this unique terroir yields a dry white wine with a honeyed bouquet, outstanding mineral components and great depth and length.

The shape of this glass offsets the richness of the wine by bringing its mineral components to the fore, resulting in a long, flinty finish.

Recommended for: Albariño, Bordeaux (white), Burgundy (white), Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Corton-Charlemagne (white), Hermitage Blanc, Marsanne, Mersault, Pinot (blanc, Grigio, Gris), Ruländer, Sauvignon Blanc (Barrique), Sauvignon-Sémillon (Barrique), Viognier.

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.
