Hennessy's top-quality brandies, such as XO and 'Paradis', are made from mature cognacs with an average age of at least 30 years. Over time, these cognacs lose harshness and acquire subtle, delicate flavours.
The Riedel V.S.O.P. glass, deliberately designed to tone down any harshly alcoholic qualities, was found to suppress the fine bouquets of these venerable old brandies.
What Riedel were looking for was a shape that would concentrate their gentle nuances of bouquet and deliver the required intensity. The result was the Riedel Sommelier Cognac XO glass - a small glass with a rounded 'belly' and a narrow 'chimney', through which these exquisite aromas could be funnelled.
A sip from this glass of a brandy such as these is a truly outstanding tasting experience: fruit, body, finesse and fire.
The Riedel Sommelier Cognac XO glass is mouth blown from lead crystal.
