RIEDEL Superleggero Champagne Glasses x 2 in 265 Years Value Pack
Launched in 2021 this is the ultimate Champagne glass. Perfect for when you come to open your Dom Pérignon Selosse Salon or Cristal.
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 Champagne glass is perfect for developing and displaying the full complexity of the finest Champagne. The egg-shaped design with the larger rim intensifies the character and releases it rather than constraining it like a classic flute does. The glass also includes a ‘sparkling point’ to aid the formation of bubbles. The result is a drinking experience of exquisite balance. Although intended specifically for the finest Champagne particularly vintage versions we also find it works beautifully with top English Sparkling.
In celebration of the company’s 265th anniversary Riedel has created some limited-edition value packs containing a pair of Superleggero Champagne 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.
