A Cognac glass designed for aged cognac - Complete your collection.

The Riedel VSOP glass, deliberately designed to toen down harsh alcoholic qualities can suppress the flavour of an aged cognac. So for Hennessy's XO Riedel went back to the drawing board.

 

A shape was required that would concentrate their gentle nuances of bouquet and deliver the required intensity. For this reason, a small glass with a rounded 'belly' and a narrow 'chimney' was chosen, through which these exquisite aromas could be funnelled. A sip from this glass of a brandy such as these is a truly outstanding tasting experience: fruit, body, finesse and fire.

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 connoisseur. 

All Riedel glasses are dishwasher safe.
