The British Wine-magazine Decanter described this glass on occasion of a comparing glass-tasting as:" The finest Burgundy glass of all times, suitable for both young and old burgundies". The finest Burgundy glass of all times, suitable for both young and old Burgundies". Another unusual award for this unique design from the year 1957 is that the Museum of modern Art (N.Y.) shows this glass in its permanent exhibition.
Mockers named this beautiful monster "Goldfish bowl" because as a drinking vessel with a volume of more than 1000ccm it's really unique. (Please mind not to fill it with more than 150ml.)
Small wines are not suited for this glass. The small amount of expression gets lost in it. Whereas big wines seem to bloom and they can show their fine aromas in an undreamt volume and intensity. Red grapes with thin walls produce less colorful wines with acid which can dull the pleasure.
Whereas this glass design integrates the acid into the fruit. The wine floats out of this finely lipped design onto the tongue in a pointy way so that the taste of the fruit and the sweet components are getting enhanced. Therefore it develops an amazing fruit-acid-game on the palate which harmonically rounds the taste of the wine.
