The Riedel Sommelier Chablis, Chardonnay glass is designed so that this low acidity is delivered in a way that sets off the alcohol and rich flavours of the wine, highlighting its velvety, supple texture, emphasising the fruit and ensuring a long, balanced finish.
Some of the finest and most expensive dry white wines are made from the Chablis, Chardonnay variety, a native of the Burgundy region which is now grown in almost all wine-producing regions worldwide. In the New World, especially, Chardonnay’s popularity stems from its creamy structure, which balances oaky, buttery flavours with low acidity. The variety produces wines of high alcoholic content, often aged in small oak barrels. Winemakers sometimes add tartaric acid to adjust for its low acidity.
This classic Riedel shape allows young wines to express all their invigorating freshness, while more mature wines are encouraged to deliver the nutty, spicy, mineral flavours so typical of the variety
Sommeliers – the world’s first grape varietal specific wine glass collection and a design revolution created by Claus J. Riedel (9th generation) who perfected glass design to its essence: bowl, stem and base. Thin-blown and unadorned, it adheres to the Bauhaus design principle of form follows function. Claus J. Riedel worked with experienced tasters and discovered that wine enjoyed from specifically designed glasses showed more depth and better balance than when served in generic glasses. In 1973 the Sommeliers collection achieved worldwide recognition. The glass collection covers 29 different shapes for wines, champagne and spirits.
