When Jesus changed water in to wine he definitely would have used a Riedel Sommelier glass.

The large bowl (capacity 900 ml) of these Riedel glasses brings out the full depth of contemporary Bordeauxs. Modern vinification techniques enable wine-makers to concentrate the fruit to such an extent that young wines may seem one-dimensional, tannic and over-oaked if served in smaller glasses.

The Sommeliers Bordeaux Grand Cru gives breathing space to both young and more mature wines, unpacking the various layers of bouquet and delivering a full spectrum of aromas. On the palate, the texture of the wine - soft, silky, velvety - is intensified and the finish prolonged, gently blending acidity with supple, sweet tannins.

Claus J Riedel was the first designer to suggest that it was the shape of the glass that played such a pivotal role in the flavour of the wine. More than 50 years in the making the Sommelier range of Riedel glasses is the pinacle of this design philosophy. 

Each glass is hand blown from the finest quality lead crystal - using techniques that are as old as glass itself the glassblowers create wafer thin bowls with precisely tailored depths, widths and rims. 

CAUTION: Once you use the Sommelier range no other glass will do. These glasses are not for a casual drink. These are tools for the most discerning wine connoisseur.
