Riedel Vinum Cognac Glasses finally provides the answer to the age-old question 'What is the best glass to drink Cognac from?
Even today, cognac is mainly served in wide tulip-shaped glasses - in spite of the disadvantages which this narrower traditional shape has for the enjoyment of cognac. The differences in color, aroma and taste are the features by which the quality of a cognac is judged.
The finely tuned shape of Riedel Vinum Cognac Glasses harmonise the aroma and the taste, tempering the alcohol and the stringency of the palate and emphasizing the bouquet. The flute-shaped lead crystal glass allows its contents a very small evaporation surface. You will be surprised to detect no pungent fumes but delicately balanced aromas reminiscent of a summer meadow.
