Riedel's artistically crafted 'Black Tie' decanter assists in the wine's full development and optimizes the wine's clarity and brilliance
The Black Tie by Riedel:
This elegant new Sommeliers Black Tie wine decanter from Riedel is designed to pair with the Riedel Sommeliers Black Tie stemware, but can easily stand alone as your most favored decanter. Its graceful lines flow in a way that is reminiscent of a beautiful brass instrument. Hand-made and mouth-blown, this lead crystal decanter features a beautiful black accent line blown seamlessly into the body of the vessel, that runs the entire perimeter of this decanter. Delight your guests and serve them a lovely red wine in this visual masterpiece.
"The finest glasses for both technical and hedonistic purposes are those made by Riedel. The effect of these glasses on fine wine is profound. I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make." (Quote: Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate)
"The Riedel family has never stamped its name on a single bottle of wine. But over the past 50 years, this Austrian clan of master glassmakers has done more to enhance the oenophile's pleasure than almost any winemaking dynasty". (Quote: TIME MAGAZINE)
Claus Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. He is thus the inventor of the functional wine glass.
