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.

Sommeliers was the world’s first wine friendly glass collection and a design revolution created by Claus J. Riedel (9th generation). The range adheres to the Bauhaus design principle of form follows function, as Claus J. Riedel had discovered that certain wines showed more depth and better balance when enjoyed from certain shapes. Thin-blown and unadorned, Sommeliers was the beginning of RIEDEL's dominance of the global wine glass market.

Sommeliers

The original Grape Varietal Specific collection

Sommeliers changed glassware forever after Claus J. Riedel recognized that the size and shape affect your perception of aroma and flavor. Each glass was designed specifically for wine enjoyment, with help from experts such as Robert Parker and winemakers including Gaja, Guigal, and Robert Mondavi. The shapes are now a benchmark for modern glassware, only improved on by the Riedel family.
