These elegant Riedel Vinum Montrachet/Chardonnay glasses are ideal for serving new world chardonnays; the generous size bowls bring out the wine’s full bouquet of these bold, rich wines. Crafted in Europe by world renowned wine glass makers, the glasses are machine-blown of brilliant 24% lead crystal. Each stands 7.5-in. high. Introduced in 1986, the Vinum collection is based on the characteristics of grape varietals, meaning the content commands the shape.Renowned Austrian glassmaker Riedel designs the shape of each glass to most fully enhance the appreciation of the wine within. The Montrachet/Chardonnay glass is unusually oversized and rounded for a white wine glass in order to let the intense aromas of rich Montrachets and Chardonnays fully develop. Beautifully balanced and with just the right mixture of delicacy and stability, each thin-stemmed glass stands 7-3/8 inches tall and holds a generous 21-1/8 ounces. This set of two Montrachet glasses makes a superb wedding gift or adds to an existing collection for the serious wine drinker.
Comprised of more than 24 percent lead crystal for superb brilliance and clarity, Vinum stems and cocktail glasses are nevertheless affordable because they are machine-made rather than mouth-blown. Riedel introduced the popular Vinum line in 1986, and this particular glass in 2000. While all Vinum glassware is dishwasher-safe, Riedel recommends washing the crystal by hand to prevent detergent residue that can affect wine taste. –Ann Bieri
