Description

Details

Vinum XL is a bold adaptation of Riedel's popular Vinum stemware line and it incorporates the same varietal-specific shapes into larger sized silhouettes for a dramatic effect at the table or bar. Developed for big, bold and concentrated wines, Vinum XL is created in leaded crystal and machine blown in Bavaria, Germany. This set includes two Riesling Grand Cru and two champagne glasses.

The sophisticated Riesling glass draws out the unique qualities of the Riesling grape, perfecting the perception of fruit, minerality, acidity, texture and aromatics to optimize the drinker's impression of the wine and guide the flavors to a satisfying finish. The classic champagne glass was developed from a 1967 model designed by Claus Riedel, originally created for the World Exhibition in Montreal, and rediscovered in 2006 during a tasting panel with Moet and Chandon. Over many weeks, the expert tasters searched for a glass which would be the best "transmitter" to highlight qualities of their 2000 Vintage. Ultimately, the glass of choice was the Vinum XL which Moet and Chandon selected above all others to present their legendary 2000 selection.
