The Montrachet appellation in Burgundy produces the world's finest and costliest dry white wines. Their centuries-old reputation is based on Chardonnay grown in the unique microclimate and soil of these vineyards and vinified according to classic techniques.
These wines are monumentally complex and dense, with high levels of alcohol and moderate acidity.
The wide mouth of this generously shaped Riedel Sommelier Montrachet/Chardonnay glass steers the wine mainly to the sourness-sensitive edges of the tongue, ensuring that the acidity is sufficiently emphasised to create a harmonious balance with the luscious fruit of the late-harvest, healthy grapes and the sweet toasty aromas of the wines ageing in oak barrels. The size of the bowl allows space for the rich bouquet to develop its superbly diverse range of aromas, while minimising the risk of it becoming over concentrated.
Of course, outstanding Chardonnays from other regions and countries can also be enjoyed from this Riedel glass.
The Riedel Sommelier Montrachet/Chardonnay glass is mouth blown from lead crystal.
