Riedel Vinum Pinot Noir (Burgundy Red) Glasses, Set of 2

The Vinum Pino Noir glass is excellent for full-bodied red wines (more than 12.5 percent alcohol) with high acidity and moderate tannin. This glass directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue which perceives sweetness, thereby highlighting the rich fruit and tempering the high acidity of the wine. The large bowl captures all the nuances of the wine’s aroma.Guided by the idea that “content commands the shape,” Riedel of Austria consistently earns first place among the makers of fine wine glasses. The Vinum series is the world’s first line of machine-made glasses formed specifically to suit varietal characteristics. Crafted to exacting standards, the glasses are 24-percent lead crystal with a beautifully balanced feel. They offer the taste-enhancing benefits of Riedel’s hand-formed glasses without the top-shelf expense.

Riedel designs the Burgundy glass to suit full-bodied wines with moderate tannin and high acidity. The large bowl is especially apt for Burgundy’s nuanced aroma and controls the flow of wine onto the optimum part of the tongue. This set of two glasses is also suitable for serving Pinot Noir, Barbaresco, Barbera, Barolo, Gamay, and Nebbiolo. Each stem stands 8-1/4 inches high and has a 24-3/4-ounce full capacity. Washing by hand is recommended. –Emily Bedard

  1. Fake Reidel Wine glasses, watch out! I believe these are counterfeit glasses. They feel like glass and are not heavy like the other crystal wine glasses that I already have. When I held the wine glass up to the light, there was no prism like how there would be with crystal. When I strike it with my finger, there is no crystal ring to it. The REIDEL logo does not match the logo that REIDEL shows on their website and the “authenticity” sticker was pealing off when I opened the package and looking at the back of the sticker…

  2. Can’t beat them Riedel is an excellent brand I have used for a long time. It compares well to other high quality wine glasses and they are pricey. This style has no lip and the glass is very thin. We have lousy water in our area so all our wine glasses have to be hand washed as the dishwasher just makes a spotty mess of them. I have had very good luck using the ecloth brand polishing cloth on Amazon to remove spots. I can get my fist into this glass to dry it well but have proven great care must be taken…
