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.

Stunning conversation and centerpiece for table settings. Striking size that holds a lot of wine and makes it easy to swirl. It is the best quality decanter I have seen, absolutely worth the price.
I have always like the classic "ships decanter" style for maximum aeration. Ships Decanters were used on many a voyage from the old country. The sturdy wide base would keep it from tipping and rolling around the Captain's table. This is the decanter I use for very old big reds.
