These Bordeaux glasses feature a stem that creates ample breathing space, liberating layers of perfumed bouquet to deliver a full spectrum of aromas. The large bowl brings out the full depth and complexity of wines, while the tall, broad chimney buffers the high alcohol profile of Bordeaux varietals. Overall this glass softens the palate attack of robust wines, delivering a silky, velvety texture that intensifies and prolongs the finish by gently blending acidity with supple and sweet tannins.
Ravenscroft Crystal draws upon literally thousands of years of glass-making experimentation and advances when crafting its lead-free crystal. Its goal is to create glasses that enhance the bouquet and taste of the wine or spirits for which they were made, and to that end it produces hand-blown, lightweight, transparent stemware, tumblers, decanters, and other bar essentials that enrich all aspects of the imbibing experience. Oenophiles and aficionados of the art of glassmaking will both relish the craftsmanship of this crystal.
