The 100 percent lead-free Ravenscroft Crystal Classic Bordeaux stem creates ample breathing space for both young and more mature wines, liberating layers of perfumed bouquet to deliver a full spectrum of aromas. This glass softens the palate attack of such robust wines delivering a soft, silky and velvety texture that intensifies and prolongs the finish by gently blending acidity with supple and sweet tannins. The large bowl (capacity 22 oz) brings out the full depth and complexity of wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. While the tall broad chimney buffers the high alcohol profile of Bordeaux varietals. Hand crafted with a beautiful hand and mouth-feel in Europe with a pulled stem, this brilliant lead-free classic is the most popular Ravenscroft Crystal European stem.
