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.
Ratings & Reviews
At first I was afraid these may be your typical oversized pinot noir glasses (see some of Riedel's other pinot glasses...) but they were the perfect balance between providing a large bowl to allow the wine to aerate, without be unnecessarily unwieldy.
Love this glass!
Elegant bowl for Pinot Noir, with the curved lip that I love. I can't wait to use them this Thanksgiving - my family are big Pinot drinkers, and this is the perfect glass for entertaining.
