Grand Cru Decanter
by Dana -
Grand Cru decanter was the closest thing we could find to a decanter we've used for many years that has become chipped. It's not quite as esthetically pleasing (the angle is more vertical), but it is good quality and we are happy with the purchase.
Lovely Decanter, Fantastic Service
The decanter is as you would expect from the photos and description. Very nice. When ordering online, however, the customer support you receive is especially important, and this is where the company shone. My order arrived broken. A huge bummer, of course, particularly because it was a Christmas gift, but shit happens. The important thing was that I was not penalized for purchasing sight unseen on line. As soon as I contacted the company, a replacement was sent out, no need to hassle and pay for return shipping of the damaged piece as other companies insist upon. During the busy holiday season, more, pointless work is the last thing you need. I really appreciate that they made the best of a bad situation.
Gorgeous Decanter Design, Wide Flat Base
by Ty -
I love this decanter's wide flat base and beveled spout. It provides lots of surface area for aerating my wine, and pours are completely drip free. I've been using the decanter since Thanksgiving, and haven't had any issues with breakage, but also I've been careful not to use the spout to carry the decanter. I wouldn't expect the narrowest part of the decanter to be able to hold the entire decanter's weight.
Possible Design Defect
Ordered this beautiful decanter #18308 for my husband as a surprise. Immediately after opening and washing the top of the neck cracked. It was a beautiful piece of art before the explosion:(
I reordered thinking I'd be more careful. This next one lasted maybe 5 minute longer as my husband was drying it the neck of this one cracked!
Very disappointed as the decanter was a statement piece and the $$ were adding up quickly as 2 decanters just didn't make it. Thinking it's possible a design flaw. Wish it would have lasted as the piece was very interesting & beautiful.

Carol, please contact us and we'll be glad to replace your decanter free of charge. We've been selling these decanters through the holiday season with great success. Definitely we'd be careful about holding the decanter by the neck.
