How does the quality of Riedel's new lead-free crystal compare to its 24% lead crystal glass?

Riedel recently began the process of converting all of its glassware from lead to lead-free glass crystal, and eventually all of Riedel's glassware will be lead-free. We compared lead vs the lead-free (Sommelier Bordeaux Grand Cru glasses side by side, and found it difficult to distinguish between the glasses. It seemed like the lead-free glasses had thinner stems and rims, while the 24% lead glasses seemed slightly heaver in the hand. There was no discernable difference in the balance, clarity or construction of the glasses.

Amazing gift, even more amazing service.

I have not seen this decanter in person yet but the gift recipients are a young New York City power couple (sweet bride and groom to be) who order fine wines direct from around the world. They were so ecstatic about this gift that the thank you note they wrote is something I will treasure (the note arrived to me LESS THAN a week after I ordered from IWA). They can't wait to serve us a glass when they visit.



My friend, the groom's mom, just visited them and said this decanter is gorgeous atop the bar in their apartment and it reflects light so beautifully.



She also commented about my card.... they thought I sent the handwritten card. It was my words, but no, IWA wrote them out beautifully.



So... I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the decanter and about IWA... Special thanks to Jerry at IWA for his kind phone manner and his wonderful service.

Very big, stable

This is great for magnums, or maybe for combining a couple of my favorite bottles. It is very stable when sitting. I have had past decanters that had a risk of tipping, not this one.

Traditional

Classic shape for traditional wine drinkers, it’s the sort of decanter my mother uses. I found this one a bit wobbly, although overall it is a decent decanter. I don’t think it’s worth the cost. I own one from Spiegelau that I got for a fraction of the price and think is just as good. The shipping experience was great, though. IWA sent it right away and there was no damage.
