The design for the Bordeaux Grand Cru glass dates back to 1959 and is now more topical than ever.
Aficionados are surprised by the exaggerated effect of the size. However,modern great red wines,pressed from the grape varieties that we recommend for this glass,require a great deal of grape to develop fully.
Due to the formal characteristics of the glass and its flowability,these wines are velvety dense with body,high extract concentration and sweet,round tannins that are incorporated into the fruit. The vessel is not intended to be filled with 860 cc of water. We recommend about 100 to 150 ml of wine.
The remaining volume is used for the development and presentation of the concentrated,rich aromas. This allows the wine to express all its typical characteristics in its optimal form. If,on the other hand,small glasses are used,these drops lose fruit,complexity,become one-dimensional,wood accentuated and bitter in the finish.
