Riedel Wine Pairings - The Bordeaux Glass
Riedel Cabernet/Merlot glasses are perfect for full-bodied, complex red wines that are high in tannin. This glass smooths out the rough edges, emphasising the fruit, allowing wines to achieve a balance that would normally take years of ageing to acquire.
The generous size of this glass allows the bouquet to develop fully. The shape directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue that perceives sweetness, thus accentuating the fruit and de-emphasising the bitter qualities of the tannin.
We recommend these wines be enjoyed in a Riedel Bordeaux (Cabernet/Merlot) glass.
