Below is an excerpt from our earlier feature on Jancis Robinson x Richard Brendon:
“Jancis was entirely confident that we could create one glass that worked perfectly for every style of wine,” says Brendon ”but we also needed two decanters to ensure we have a collection that works for every wine.”
With 40 years’ experience tasting wine, Robinson set out the specific parameters for her ideal glass. “The widest part of the glass should be exactly 125ml or one-sixth of a bottle. This would mean when a standard pour is served, the wine will have maximum surface area, allowing for all of the aroma to get out of the wine,” he says. “Jancis wanted a nice tall bowl to allow for the wine to be swirled in the glass to get more of the aromas out of the wine, and that the opening of the glass should be as small as possible to trap the aromas of the wine, but still big enough for even the largest of noses! The thickness of the rim was of upmost importance, she wanted it to be gossamer-thin so that you hardly notice the glass when taking a sip.“
