RIEDEL Sommeliers Mature Bordeaux/Chablis/Chardonnay
This glass is perfect for highlighting the subtle nuances of certain wines, including aged Bordeaux plus Chablis and Chardonnay of any age. It is designed to allow white wines to express their freshness, spiciness, and mineral characters. The shape highlights a velvety, supple texture, emphasizes fruit and ensures a long, balanced finish.
During workshops, it was also discovered this is the ideal glass for Mature Bordeaux.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.
