Riedel decanters combine sophistication and elegance with optimal shapes for aeration. Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wine's clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time. Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging.
A labor of love, the Riedel Black Tie Bliss Decanter displays a rotund foundation with an off-center heart stamped from each side, thus compressing the crystal into a thin pane of solid glass. This innovative design forces the wine to pool around the element while providing a place for the fingers to rest as the wine flows out of the decanter into a waiting glass. The decanter is mouth-blown and formed by hand without the use of molds, making each a unique work of art. The decanter stands 14 3/8" high and holds 42 5/8 oz. Made from 24% lead crystal.
