Size: H: 11", Cap: 39oz.

This handmade decanter named Medoc is ideal for vintage red wines, young white wines, champagnes and orange wine. The tall, slender shape of the optically crafted decanter makes it easy to handle, and perfect to fit in the fridge door. As Maximilian J. Riedel, the designer of these new decanters explains, the design is in keeping with the modern trend towards casual dining: Back to basics. Riedel decanters with a double and triple-decanting function have a high level of functionality and are perfect for connoisseurs. Some people, however, may find these decanters too complicated and intricate to handle. With our M decanters, we are taking a step back and offering an alternative that we think reflects todays farm to table zeitgeist perfectly. This decanter is produced at the Riedel factory in Kufstein from crystal glass.

Varietal Specific Designs

"It takes a great deal of efforts for a talented wine-maker to produce a good wine. These efforts can be ruined in no time if the wine is not served properly. The quality of the glass plays a crucial role here and Riedel produces the largest range of high quality glasses, specifically fine-tuned to fit the predominant wine varietals of the planet. Riedel makes it possible to fully appreciate all the nuances of aromas and tastes from the best wines of the world." -Michel Bettane

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.

"I prefer to decant wines, both young and old. It is a sign of respect for old wines and a sign of confidence in young wines. Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wines' clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time. Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging." - Georg Riedel
