Gift packaged in a special Riedel
Celebrating Riedel Sommeliers Glass Collection 40th Anniversary!
Introduced in 1958, the Riedel
Burgundy Grand Cru glass, is the only stemware on
permanent display in New York City's Museum of Modern
This glass was described by
Decanter magazine after their first official glass
comparison as "The finest Burgundy glass of all time,
suitable for both young and old
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
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
Certain wines and grape varieties
require this type of controlled delivery. By ensuring
that the fruit is highlighted while usingthe marked
acidity of the wine to keep the flavours in balance,
this is a glass that produces a superbly
three-dimensional 'taste picture'.
Also known as a Winston Churchill
Barbaresco, Barolo, Beaujolais Grand Cru,
Blauburgunder, Burgundy (red), Gamay,
Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir.
