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
Besides providing a great service of decanting, it's a lovely design and beautiful accessory to the table.
Classic style and shape
I have always enjoyed the classic style of these decanters. It is large too, I can fit a whole magnum inside, which is great for our dinner parties. Easy to lift, easy to pour.
