Riedel Sommeliers Individual Sauternes Glass
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.
Tastings around the world have shown this glass to be the ideal glass for Sauternes and sweet wines. The unusual curved design accentuates the apricot aromas typical of wines made from grapes affected by botrytis ('noble rot'). The glass is designed to emphasise acidity, thus balancing the wine's liquorous sweetness and luscious finish.
