The Ideal Glass

The Montrachet glass is perfect for full-bodied white wines such as:

The wide bowl steers the wine to the sensitive parts of the tongue, ensuring that the acidity creates a harmonious balance with the sweet aromas of aged wines.

The wide bowl allows the full bouquet of aromas to develop, and minimise the risk for it to be over-concentrated.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
