According to Quenioux “What is complicated with wine is to get the balance between the fire and water. Get too much fire in the wine and you lose the message of the water. But if you put too much water in the fire, then the fire is dead.” He believes that the rounded and bowed bowl of the wine glass, which evokes a closed tulip blossom, can revolutionize the savouring of fine vintages by taming the alcohol in the wine.
The sloping sides and an unusually narrow lip at the end of a vertical “chimney” should prevent the alcohol from overpowering the subtle aromas and the bouquet the fine wines have to offer since it sinks down when the glass is swirled prior to tasting. A true enhancement of the act and the art of wine tasting.
Featured in the emblematic red box, the set of 4 glasses are the perfect companion for exceptional moments and the ideal gift to begin a first collection of Baccarat glasses. A champagne flûte for the more sparkling occasions, two wine glasses to honour every vintage, and a goblet to expose the very essence of spirits.
