Riedel Vinum Cognac Hennessy Set of 6 (P/N 416/71).

Make the moment you serve cognac an occasion for celebration with this Riedel Vinum set.

  • A wide bowl gives this French variety of brandy room to aerate for optimum taste and scent.
  • The stem, comparatively long for a cognac glass, elevates the liqueur and elongates the broad-bowled vessel.
  • Thin, crisp lead-free glass makes for a more attractive appearance. Hand-washing recommended.

What makes Riedel stemware unique



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.

Adorable Glasses

by

I don’t mind leaded glassware, because it sparkles better and unless you leave the spirits / wine in the glass for months there isn’t any health issue. I like that about these glasses, but found the thick seams to be distracting. It’s a nice glass for everyday use, but I think it is expensive for what it is. I’m not sure I’d pay this much for these again.

Cognac lover

When I was in Chicago I ordered a Cognac at a restaurant, and they served it in these glasses. I have collected and enjoyed Cognac for years, but never fully appreciated the effect the glass can have on the experience. I tracked down the manager to find out the brand and immediately ordered a set once I got back home. If you enjoy Cognac, treat yourself and pick up set of these. I wanted the set of 6 because I host tastings from time to time, but they also sell 2 pack sets.
