Riedel Sommeliers Burgundy Grand Cru
The Riedel Sommeliers Burgundy Grand Cru glass was described by Decanter magazine as “The finest Burgundy glass of all time, suitable for both young and old Burgundies.”
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 Art.
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 palate. Certain wines and grape varieties require this type of controlled delivery. By ensuring that the fruit is highlighted while using the marked acidity of the wine to keep the flavours in balance, this is a glass that produces a superbly three-dimensional ‘taste picture’.
