My husband and I recently dined at a Dallas restaurant, where we ordered a bottle of Aubert Chardonnay. The sommelier used the Riedel Sommelier Burgundy Grand Cru glasses, which were beautiful, but I'm curious if anyone else would have used that glass for a chardonnay. Any thoughts?

Good to see you posting here Donna.

I've used several different glasses with the Aubert Chardonnay. I haven't used the Riedel Somm Burg before but I've used a glass slightly smaller and I thought the wine showed really well since it was a fairly recent release by Aubert.

Thanks! I had a difference of opinion with Mark Squires, and now he won't let me back on his board. Roll Eyes

Something else to be thankful for!

I prefer Burgundy glasses for all serious Chardonnay.


LOL!

Hmmm...interesting. We're relatively new to serious wine (within the last 3 years), so I'm learning something new all the time.

Let's just say if you asked both of us, you'd get 2 different answers.
Let me guess. You thought he was an a-hole and he didn't. Cool

GENERALLY true, though sometimes not. For example, I prefer an aged Bordeaux style glass for BdM, than the large bowl glasses often used for Italian.

However, as long as it's big enough to get your nose into, after that it's shape, and how it enhances the specific wine's typical nuances.
