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.

Good merlot glass
I admit it - I drink a lot of merlot! But, it's becoming more popular, and I realized I should invest in stemware that will highlight the fruity wine. I like the glass, it has a wide base and beautiful bowl, and I believe it makes Merlot wine taste better.
