Product details

The Vintage Champagne flute is perfect for savouring exquisitely matured champagnes.

Its slender yet subtly tapered shape accentuates the fine bead and enhances the aromatic profile of vintage champagnes, making it an elegant choice for discerning connoisseurs. It also features a 'sparkling point' to encourage the formation of delightful bubbles.

Sommeliers was the world’s first wine-friendly glass collection, designed by Claus J. Riedel (9th generation) and revolutionising the concept of wine glasses. Following the Bauhaus design principle of form follows function, Claus J. Riedel discovered that certain wines exhibit greater depth and balance when enjoyed from specific shapes. Thin-blown and unadorned, Sommeliers marked the beginning of RIEDEL's global dominance in the wine glass market.

This product is handmade, with each piece individually crafted by master glassmakers, giving every item a unique character. Due to the artisanal nature of the process, small variations in size and weight, tiny bubbles, imperfections, or slight surface variations are a normal and acceptable part of the charm.

ABOUT RIEDEL

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.
