The Ideal Glass

The Bordeaux glass is perfect for medium to full bodied red wines.

It is taller than other red wine glasses, and has a slimmer bowl.

The large size of the glass allows the fruit bouquet to develop. It smooths out rough edges, plays down tannins, and allows the wines to achieve balance.

The slimmer bowl sends the wine directly to the back of the mouth for maximum taste.
