What makes Riedel stemware unique
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.

I was dubious about these glasses, but a friend of mine recommended them because I'm a champagne enthusiast. At first glance, these flutes look like a narrow white wine glasses, which seems like an odd shape for sparkling wine, but wow does it make the bubbles look fabulous!
