This glass is a precision instrument for the delivery of the great wines of Bordeaux. The large bowl (capacity 30 oz) brings out the full depth and complexity of wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
Modern vinification techniques can concentrate fruit to such an extent that young wines may seem crude, one-dimensional, tannic or excessively oaked if served in smaller glasses.
The 100 percent brilliant lead-free crystal Ravenscroft Classic Bordeaux Grand Cru creates ample space for both young and more mature wines, liberating layers of perfumed bouquet to deliver a full spectrum of aromas. This glass softens the palate attack of such robust wines delivering a soft, silky and velvety texture that intensifies and prolongs the finish by gently blending acidity with supple and sweet tannins. This is the pinnacle of delivery systems for the great wines of Bordeaux.
Recommended for Bordeaux, Brunello Di Montalcino, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Fronsac, Graves Rouge, Margaux, Medoc, Merlot, Pauillac, Pomerol, St. Emillion, St. Estephe, St. Julien, Sangiovese and Super Tuscan.
