2- Fruity white wines
Initially this glass was specifically designed for Chardonnay, but it's ideal for any fruity white wine. Its shape enhances the fresh and fruity aromas of younger wines as well as the mineral nuances of greater wines.
3- Burgundy white wines
This glass was specifically designed for this kind of white wines, which are dry and aromatic. With ideal proportions to enhance a rich and sometimes complex bouquet without concentrating the aromas too much.
4- Burgundy Grands Crus
Displayed at the Museum of Modern Art of New York (MoMA), this glass is considered the perfect choice to taste Burgundy Grands Crus. This glass is characterized by an extremely broad bowl that allows all the aromas to develop and grow in harmony to offer a complex bouquet. It also helps to balance the acidity.
Champagne, Cava and other sparking wine glasses are taller and narrow to get fine and elegant bubbles without losing the aromas.
7- Champagne Cuvée Prestige or Vintage
Great Champagnes and Cavas need a special glass. Its tulip shape helps enhancing the aromas and mouthfeel without being the bubbles a predominant factor.
8- Sauternes or other fortified wines
This glass is perfect for fortified whites, specially for Château d'Yquem, but also for sweet wines. Its peculiar shape allows an ideal expression of the acidity and also helps to balance the sweetness. Its closed and curved rim enhances the aromas.
9- Rosé Wines
The glasses for rosés are similar to the ones for fruity whites. They shouldn't be too big to keep the aromas nor too tall to avoid excessive aeration.
Thanks to its conical shape, this glass manages to concentrate the aromas. With a traditional shape, but a crystal of better quality, this glass has a longer stem to keep the wine cool.
12- Bordeaux Great Wines
Glass specifically designed to highlight the characteristics of the great wines of Bordeaux. It has a taller bowl that helps aerating the wine and intensifying its flavours while it flows through the glass.
13- Spanish reds (Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva)
The glasses for Spanish reds were specially designed for Tempranillo reds, mainly from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. They are rather tall for a better aeration and the rim is slightly closed to concentrate the aromas. With the same shape, the bowl gets broader and larger depending on whether the wine to taste is a Crianza, Reserva or Gran Reserva, as they need more aeration to express their aromas.
