RIEDEL Sommeliers Black Tie Bordeaux Grand Cru
The Bordeaux Grand Cru glass is perfect for full-bodied, complex red wines that are high in tannin.
This shape was one of the original 'wine friendly' glasses designed by 9th generation Claus J. RIEDEL. The generous size of this glass allows the bouquet to develop fully, and smooths out the rough edges. It emphasises the fruit, playing down the bitter qualities of the tannin, and allows wines to achieve balance.
This product features a black crystal stem and clear crystal base.Introduced in 2008, Sommeliers Black Tie celebrated the 50th anniversary of RIEDEL's iconic collection, Sommeliers, designed by 9th generation Claus J. Riedel.
Boasting both functionality and elegant aesthetics, the handmade Sommeliers Black Tie collection celebrates this anniversary with some “black tie” touches. The red wine glasses feature a tall black stem with a clear base, and the white wine glasses feature a black base with a tall clear stem.
