This glass, first created in 1959, is not a design gimmick but
a precision instrument, developed to highlight the unique characteristics of the
great wines of Bordeaux. The large bowl (capacity 30 oz) brings out the full
depth of contemporary wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and
Merlot. Modern vinification techniques enable wine-makers to concentrate the
fruit to such an extent that young wines may seem one-dimensional, tannic and
over-oaked if served in smaller glasses. The Sommeliers Bordeaux Grand Cru gives
breathing space to both young and more mature wines, unpacking the various
layers of bouquet and delivering a full spectrum of aromas. On the palate, the
texture of the wine - soft, silky, velvety - is intensified and the finish
prolonged, gently blending acidity with supple, sweet tannins. This is a glass
that showcases these majestically structured red wines in all their complexity
and finesse.
