The Stemless Bordeaux glass, which is tall with a broad bowl, and is designed for full bodied red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon
|Stemless Red Wine Glasses have literally exploded onto the glassware market and much like traditional red wine glasses, these stemless varieties are also characterized by their rounder and wider bowl designs. This feature enables the rate of oxidation to increase, and as oxygen chemically interacts with the wine, the flavors and aromas are subtly altered. This oxidation process is generally more compatible with red wines, because their more complex flavours are smoothed out after being exposed to air. Now you know why many people swirl and sniff!|
Stemless Red Wine Glasses can have 2 particular styles:
The Stemless Bordeaux glass, which is tall with a broad bowl, and is designed for full bodied red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, as it directs wine to the back of the mouth;
And the Stemless Burgundy glass, which is broader than the Bordeaux and has a bigger bowl to accumulate aromas of more delicate red wines such as Pinot Noir, as it directs wine to the tip of the tongue.
The contemporary design of Stemless Red Wine Glasses is not only pleasing on the eye, but provides a very comfortable drinking experience. They also make for fantastic gift ideas for wine lovers.
To release the amazing aromas from your wines, the swirling action of your glass must be comfortable and natural. This makes Stemless Red Wine Glasses even more practical than stemmed varieties, as they are incredibly easy to grip in the palm of your hand making your swirl as natural as possible without the awkward stems. All in all, the red wine version of the stemless glass adds a sense of relaxation and casualness to your occasion without affecting your appreciation for glorious wine.
