I bought these glasses for my husband's birthday. He likes more expensive wine so I figured these glasses would be worth the money. They are very stylish and provide an excellent glass for the wines. They are obviously fragile but we haven't had any issues with them cracking or breaking - we just wash them by hand carefully. Overall a great quality product!

If you have a top of the line product it should be top of the line and without defect, even mouth blown products!!! These glasses at over [$] a pop should have been weeded out of the sommeliers collection as they were poorly finished on the stems and had visible airbubbles in the bowl!!! I would like to return them but the hassle of packing and shipping such fragile stems is more daunting than I care to think about. They were a gift and I was embarrassed when I used them with my husband! I have several other types of this glass and none of them came in such poor shape, what a bummer!

    Comments about Riedel Sommeliers Cabernet / Merlot / Bordeaux Wine Glass (1):

    Best glasses available for big cabs and Bordeaux. But handle with care: even with careful hand washing you may shatter the thin crystal. Two of the glasses arrived shattered in the box. A quick e-mail to customer service and they were promptly replaced no questions asked.

      Comments about Riedel Sommeliers Cabernet / Merlot / Bordeaux Wine Glass (1):

      Love the glass, however, I have had two break over the years. I think
      there should be a return policy for broken glasses. One was my fault.
      The other class literally broke in my hand. I think the stem is too thin for the size of the bowl.

      Although fragile and delicate to clean.....this is the only glass to drink wine from. The Somellier Series from Reidel is the ultimate in wine enjoyment. Why pay for expensive wine and then drink it from a glass which is less than perfection. Expensive but well worth it.

          Definitely enhances the red wine experience. However, you have to be extremely careful when washing because of the large, delicate bowl of the glass.
