With 'Les Impitoyables®', tasting becomes perfection. Our glasses are specially designed to reveal all of the qualities of each wine. Each style of wine has its own glass shape to release the flavors and serve just the right volume to reveal the wine's quintessence. Each 'Les Impitoyables' glass is a unique handmade and off-hand blown piece created according to great glassmaking traditions.
Glass No. 1: Light wines (red or white) The elongated shape and sleek contours propel the fruity floral aromas up the glass for very pure olfactory sensations. The moderate size of the glass allows light and delicate wines to subtly reveal their flavours without excessive aeration.
USING A TASTING GLASS
The glass should be filled no higher than the broadest part of the body, allowing a maximum exposure to the air, causing the aromas to develop and intensify. The broad surface will also allow the optimal opportunity to examination the surface of the wine.
By filling the glass to only one-third of its capacity, space remains for the aromas of the wine - its bouquet - to develop. As the wine begins to evaporate, its various aromatic elements begin to concentrate in this area and taster is able to fully appreciate all the wine has to offer over the course of the tasting.
Please note: before each tasting, purists will rinse each glass with a little wine.
