The Ravenscroft Bordeaux Classic Crystal Wine Glasses set of 4 is designed to accentuate the attributes of each type of wine. The bowls are formed to amplify the bouquet and to precisely guide your wine to the appropriate zones of the palate. This glass softens the palate attack of robust wines by delivering a soft, silky and velvety texture that intensifies and prolongs the finish by gently blending acidity with supple and sweet tannins.The stem creates enough breathing space for both young and more mature wines, there by liberating layers of perfumed bouquet to deliver a full spectrum of aromas. The large bowl brings out the full depth and complexity of wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. While the tall broad chimney buffers the high alcohol profile of Bordeaux varietals. Hand crafted in Europe with a pulled stem, this brilliant lead-free classic is the most popular Ravenscroft Crystal European stem and is recommended for: Bordeaux, Brunello, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Super Tuscan.
