Veritas Champagne Wine glass by Riedel.
Lead Crystal, machine-blown.
You can also use this glass for : Cuvée Prestige, Sparkling wine, Blanc de Blancs.
The new Veritas Series by Riedel is spectacular. This machine-made lead crystal collection 15% taller than the Vinum Series but 25% lighter and finer, while maintaining dishwasher safety and resistance against breakage.
In another first for Riedel, the Veritas Collection include the “Champagne Wine Glass,” a glass that boldly departs from the style of the conventional Champagne flute. “The name Champagne Wine Glass was chosen carefully and deliberately.” says President, CEO & 11th-generation glassmaker Maximilian J. Riedel. “Champagne is a wine and deserves to be treated as such. Whether enjoying a Blanc de Blancs or a Cuvée, the Champagne Wine Glass allows the wide range of aromas of Champagne to unfold. The larger rim diameter enables the aromas of the Champagne to be released, in a way which is not possible with a narrow flute. The glass also includes a point mousse, or ”sparkling point” – a tiny groove in the base of the bowl – to aid the formation of the Champagne bubbles, effervescence being an important part of the Champagne experience.”
