“ While traveling through the Left Bank {Bordeaux, France}, we kept noticing these glasses at tastings… We've been totally delighted with the glasses. Not only does the shape help deliver aromatics for the variety of wines we drink (and does a good job at trapping tannins in the bottom), they look elegant, and are surprisingly steely for such delicate-looking glasses. We put them in the dishwasher, we (accidentally) bang them into things, and nary a crack.”
