|Within the Wine Master collection the Bordeaux glass is perhaps the hardest working. It has to be able to enhance the qualities from a blend of many different grape varieties simultaneously.
In effect, this particular stem will work for any Cabernet Sauvignon or Cabernet Franc dominant wine or blend, from the red wines of the Loire to the Cabernet Shiraz of South Australia.
Cabernet has a degree of firmness and structure that requires plenty of aeration, while providing one of the most haunting and subtle aromas that the wine world has to offer. The moderately tall bowl focuses the classic black fruit aromas of Cabernet, while the straight, wide rim helps to soften the typically rigid tannins of the variety.
Tuscan wines, such as Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino, also excel with this glass a very good all-round dinner stem and possibly the most versatile of the Wine Master range.
