The English wine magazine Decanter described this glass as The finest Burgundy glass of all times,suitable for both young and old burgundies on the occasion of a comparative glass tasting.
Another unusual award for this unique form from 1957 is the fact that the Museum of Modern Art (N.Y.) shows this glass in his permanent exhibition.
Spötter have also called this beautiful monster a Goldfishbowl,because as a drinking vessel with a capacity of over 1000 ccm it is unique. (Please note,never pour more than 150 ml.)
Small wines are not well treated in this glass,the little expression is lost to them here completely. The great wines,on the other hand,are full-bodied and capable of displaying their finest aromas in an undreamt-of abundance and intensity. Red grape varieties with thin skins produce less colourful wines with Säure,which are able to carry the drinking pleasure.
This glass form,on the other hand,integrates the Säure into the fruit. The wine flows from this delicately lipped form to the tongue and reinforces the taste of the fruit and the sour tasting components. This creates an exciting fruity play on the palate that harmoniously rounds off the taste of the wine.
