Riedel's premier collection, the Sommeliers line, includes an impressive assortment of lead-crystal glasses, each developed by experts to flatter a specific type of fine wine or liquor. This glass is designed to showcase fine Champagne, including Cuvée Prestige, Vintage Champagne, Vintage Sparkling Wine and Rosé Champagne. The large fluted bowl provides ample breathing space, which concentrates the yeasty bouquet and brings out the full range of aromas. The narrow mouth directs the flow of liquid to areas of the palate that recognize the creamy texture. To preserve the Champagne's effervescence, each flute has a tiny dot etched into the base of its bowl; this slightly abraded spot generates a continuous stream of bubbles. Artisans at the company's family-owned factory in Austria craft this exquisite piece individually, performing every step of the glassmaking process by hand. We recommend washing by hand. 11.6-oz. cap., 9 1/2” high.
