Pushing the limits of excellence, Riedel brings you its stunning pulled-stem design. The elegance of its form, the exquisite curvature at the tip of the stem, is matched only by its impact on your Pinot Noir's taste.See More Product Details
If the sipping of wine is not a fundamentally tactile experience for you, spending [$] for a crystal wine glass is an extravagance, when one could be had for $5 or $10. If, on the other hand, tactility in a wine glass borders on a fetish, you won't do better than this delightful glass. I find this glass more aesthetically pleasing than its counterpart in the more expensive Sommelier collection, which I find a tad too small and more than a tad too light. This glass has a pleasing shape, a generous size without being vulgarly oversized, and a satisfying weight in the hand. As such, it greatly enhances the wine-drinking experience, which is what a good glass should do. The crystal, while fine and requiring ginger hand washing, is not so delicate as to be impossibly fragile. This is one of the virtues of lead crystal: it's durability. In all, a totally satisfying glass, and more rewarding than glasses I've tried at two or even three times the price.
Glasses are stunning, especially when they are used with a deep red wine. Tremendous concentration of bouquet. Big problem is how to clean it, because the glass is very delicate, especially for the size and length of the stem, and the mouth of the glass is quite narrow. The brush WE recommended with the purchase was actually too wide to go into the glass without forcing it...after one effort I threw the brush away.
These glasses are the best I own and my wife and I use them all the time. They are a bit pricey but really everything nice is and you get what you pay for. Riedel is #1 in my book. Hand wash very carefully. It's really nice to drink wine from a great glass and you really can tell the difference.
The only reason I'm giving a 4 star rating is because these were a gift, and I've had only one opportunity to drink from one. These look a bit more durable than the other Riedel wine glasses that I have, but I'm not sure if they are. These were a gift to a friend (bought a set of 4), and he loves the shape and size of them. They are a bit taller, which makes them seem more elegant. The design of them do seem to compliment and bring out the bouquet and flavor of Pinot Noir wines.
I paid for and counted on the fact that the glasses would be gift wrapped and include the gift message that I included with my order. They were not gift wrapped and did not include the message, making it inconvenient and expensive for me to wrap them and have messages written on very short notice. I expected much better service and am very disappointed.
