This glass is a precision instrument for the delivery of the great wines of the Bordeaux region. The large bowl brings out the full depth and complexity of wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Modern vinification techniques can concentrate fruit to such an extent that young wines may seem one-dimensional when served in smaller glasses. The brilliant lead-free crystal Ravenscroft Classics Bordeaux Grand Cru creates ample space for both young and more mature wines, liberating layers of perfumed bouquet to deliver a full spectrum of aromas. This glass softens the palate attack of robust wines to deliver a soft, luxurious satin texture that intensifies and prolongs the finish by gently blending acidity with supple and sweet tannins.
