This crystal glass was described by Crystal Decanter magazine as The finest Burgundy crystal glass of all time, suitable for both young and old Burgundies. Its shape, developed in 1958, represented a quantum leap in terms of wine crystal 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 crystal 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 Crystal Bowl allows the bouquet to develop to the full, while the slightly flared top lip maximizes the fruit flavors 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 flavors in balance, this is a crystal 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

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
