Riedel’s newest introduction, the Sommeliers Black Tie series, marks the celebration of Claus Josef Riedel’s unveiling of the first Sommeliers Burgundy Grand Cru glass in 1958. Riedel’s varietal specific wine glass concept has changed the world of wine drinking around the globe, by highlighting the effect that size and shape have on the aroma and flavor perception of the wine. This special new Black Tie series incorporates the Sommeliers line’s classic shapes into gorgeous mouth-blown stemware, all accented in black. This Riedel Black Tie Champagne glass features the same classic shape of its Sommelier series counterpart, perfectly capturing the nuances of the fine wine it was designed for. The bowl rests on a clear stem, accented by a beautiful black base, creating an elegant dressed up appeal, and is packed in a handsome single gift tube.
