Glass in the grape Variety-Specific design
The Grand Cru glass for Bordeaux from the Sommeliers series by Riedel is made of finest crystal glass and features a fine edge for the mouth, as well as the grape variety specific design, which optimally unfolds the aroma of the Bordeaux wine, bringing it to the fore.
The glass is suitable for Bordeaux, but also for other wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Moulis, Pauillac, Pessac Léognan (Rouge) and St. Julien. In addition to the Grand Cru glass for Bordeaux, there is also a grape variety-specific design available for mature Bordeaux.
40 years of Sommeliers Wine Glass Series
The Sommeliers series was designed in the 1970s by Claus Riedel in cooperation with the Italian Sommeliers Association A.I.S. (Associazione Italiana Sommeliers). Back then as well as today, the Sommeliers series with 10 different wine goblets sets the standards for wine glasses of any kind and is the most successful hand-made glass series in the world.
Each glass of the series is unique and is manufactured elaborately by hand from crystal glass. The top parts are blown in the form whereas the stem and the base are made according to production methods, which were developed in ancient times and even used 2000 years ago in the Mediterranean.
On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Sommeliers series, the Grand Cru glass in the set of 2 is available at a special price.
