Riedel Escargot Decanter
The Riedel Escargot Decanter has a double aeration effect. The first aeration takes place when the wine is poured out of the bottle into the decanter exposing the content of the bottle to oxygen. (Lift the decanter from horizontal to a vertical position to fill the decanter.) The second contact with oxygen is triggered when the wine is poured out of the decanter and into the glass. (When pouring, hold the decanter by the oval indent for conveyance.) The decanter construction forces fresh air through the already decanted wine a second time to fill the air space in the decanter. Because they are mouthblown by only the most experienced master glass blowers, no two decanters are exactly alike.
The decanter stands 5 7/8" high, and holds 1,400ML/49-3/8 oz.
