This exquisite, delicate glass belongs to Riedel’s finest range is inspired by the Montrachet appellation in Burgundy. The wide mouth of this generously shaped glass steers the wine mainly to the sourness-sensitive edges of the tongue, ensuring that the acidity is sufficiently emphasised to create a harmonious balance with the luscious fruit of the late-harvest. The size of the bowl allows space for the rich bouquet to develop while minimising the risk of it becoming over concentrated. As with all of Riedel’s glasses, Sommieliers Montrachet Chardonnay is mouth blown by master craftsmen. A wide range of glasses, carafes and decanters are available, including the Black Tie and Vinum collections.
