Superleggero Bordeaux Grand Cru Glasses x 2 in 265 Years Value Pack
The ultimate Bordeaux wine glass. Perfect for when you come to open your Château Pétrus.
In 1958 Riedel launched the very first ‘wine-friendly’ glasses with the Sommeliers Series, which were blown into a mould by glassblowers in Tyrol. They are still one of the most iconic glasses on the market today. The Superleggero Series uses the same technique and shape as the Sommeliers Series, but it’s lead free (hence tougher) and features a slimmer aesthetic, making them super light. These hand-formed glasses are simply brilliant, bringing the wine drinker closer to the wine than ever before.
The design of the Superleggero Bordeaux Grand Cru glass smooths the edges, emphasises the fruit and plays down any bitter tannins. The result is a drinking experience of exquisite balance. Although intended specifically for the finest Bordeaux, we also find it works beautifully with a Super Tuscan or Napa Cabernet Sauvignon.
In celebration of the company’s 265th anniversary, Riedel has created some limited-edition value packs containing a pair of Superleggero Bordeaux Grand Cru glasses. And they are great value, because the second glass is effectively one-third the normal price.
The Riedel family can trace their trade in luxury glassware back to Johann Cristoph, born in 1673. Now in the hands of the 11th generation, Maximilian Josef Riedel, this multi-award-winning, family-run business has become as entwined with the world of fine wine as the vines themselves. Combining science, the experience of some of the world’s finest palates and a pinch of magic, they design their glorious glasses to enhance the bouquet, texture, flavour, finish and pleasure delivered by specific grape varieties. Anyone lucky enough to attend one of their wine glass tasting events will be converted for life. The adage of having ‘the right tool for the right job’ has never been more fitting than when enjoying wine from a Riedel.
