This handmade decanter named Medoc is ideal for vintage red wines, young white wines, champagnes and orange wine. The tall, slender shape of the optically crafted decanter makes it easy to handle, and perfect to fit in the fridge door. As Maximilian J. Riedel, the designer of these new decanters explains, the design is in keeping with the modern trend towards casual dining: “Back to basics. Riedel decanters with a double and triple-decanting function have a high level of functionality and are perfect for connoisseurs. Some people, however, may find these decanters too complicated and intricate to handle. With our ‘M’ decanters, we are taking a step back and offering an alternative that we think reflects today’s ‘farm to table’ zeitgeist perfectly.” This decanter is produced at the Riedel factory in Kufstein from crystal glass.

ABOUT REIDEL

When developing a glass, RIEDEL's design ideas are not born on a drawing board, but shaped by trial and error with the help and support of the world's greatest palates. A person interested in wine is led by color, bouquet and taste, but often the glass is not considered as an instrument to convey the wine's message. Over the years, RIEDEL has acquired some interesting scientific explanations as to why the shape of a glass influences the bouquet and taste of alcoholic beverages. The first discovery was made while enjoying wine. The same wine displayed completely differently characteristics when served in a variety of glasses. The differences were so great that experienced connoisseurs were made to believe that they were tasting different wines. The grape variety is the key factor in determining the relationship between fruit, acidity, tannin and alcohol. As the next step, RIEDEL was able to create shapes in which the wine, vinified from specific grape varieties, seemed to improve. We started to recognize the complex role that size and shape play in conveying the message of a fine wine.
