Superleggero Burgundy Grand Cru Glass
The ultimate Burgundy wine glass. Perfect for when you come to open your Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.
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 is lead free (making it 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 Burgundy Grand Cru glass is perfect to support the fragility, fresh compact fruit and subtle nuances of top Pinot Noir. It highlights sweetness, levels the acidity and deemphasises the alcohol. The result is a drinking experience of exquisite balance. Although intended specifically for the finest Burgundy, we also find it works beautifully with top Barolo, Barbaresco, Beaujolais Cru and American Pinot Noir.
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.
