Which glass for which wine?

A good wine requires a good glass! A good glass is colourless, wafer-thin and clear; it has a bulbous shape that tapers slightly towards the top. As a general rule, different wines require different glass shapes. Only in the right glass can the bouquet, i.e. the aromas and flavours bound to the alcohol, unfold to their fullest.

Burgundy goblet: In this large-volume goblet shape, the noble drop develops its full aroma. Great growths blossom in this glass and reveal even the finest nuances. A Pinot Noir or Pinot Noir has a lot of fruit and fine flavour facets that call for a somewhat larger glass and develop particularly well in it.

Burgundy goblet: From this classic glass, the wine flows onto the tongue in a concentrated manner. The aromas of the fruit and the elegant nuances are intensified and condensed into a harmonious overall picture.

Bordeaux goblet: The typical scents of a Bordeaux of cedar and leather as well as its rather discreet fruit underpinned by pronounced tannins come out pleasantly in a voluminous glass. The complexity of its concentrated aromas are shown through this glass.

White wine goblet: Young white wines unfold their freshness in this glass, with more mature wines the spicy note comes into its own more strongly. At the same time, fruit and acidity remain in balance.

Rosé goblet: Rosé wines are usually drunk young. This slenderly curved glass emphasises the aromas, harmonising fruit and freshness. The delicately bitter finish is given more expression.
