The Sommeliers is now the wine glass benchmark and the most successful series of hand-made glasses in the world. Each glass is meticulously hand-crafted to showcase the best characteristic of a specific wine, allowing you to truly experience the wine's bouquet, taste, balance and finish.
This glass was described by Decanter magazine as "The finest Burgundy glass of all time, suitable for both young and old Burgundies." 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 flavors 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'.
The Sommelier Burgundy glass has a large bowl and flared rim that is ideally suited for the appreciation of medium to full bodied red wines such as Barbaresco, Barolo, Beaujolais Grand Cru, Blauburgunder, Burgundy (red), Dornfelder, Echézeaux, Gamay, Moulin à vent, Musigny, Nuits Saint Georges, Nebbiolo, Pommard, Pinot noir, Romanée Saint Vivant, Santenay, Volnay, Vosne-Romanée, Vougeot..
Each glass stands 9 3/4" high, holds 37 oz and is sold individually.
Wine sold separately.
