The Cognac VSOP glass is perfect for providing the ideal tasting experience of Cognac: fruit, body, finesse and fire.
Cognac has traditionally been served in large glasses similar to a Brandy Balloon, despite the fact that this style works against the characters of cognac. The smaller, tulip-shaped Cognac glass harmonizes aroma and taste and emphasizes the bouquet. Offering its contents, a very small evaporation surfaces to temper the alcohol and stringency on the palate.Sommeliers was the world’s first wine friendly glass collection and a design revolution created by Claus J. Riedel (9th generation). The range adheres to the Bauhaus design principle of form follows function, as Claus J. Riedel had discovered that certain wines showed more depth and better balance when enjoyed from certain shapes. Thin-blown and unadorned, Sommeliers was the beginning of RIEDEL's dominance of the global wine glass market. This product is handmade. Our master glassmakers individually craft each item so every piece has a unique character. Due to the nature of crafting, small tolerances in the size and weight of each product, tiny bubbles, imperfections, or slight surface variations are an acceptable part of the process.
