Lehmann "Jamesse Prestige" Grand Champagne mouth blown wine glass
Possible the greatest Champagne glass ever! Gary Westby came back from Champagne raving about this glass and for good reason. Perfectly shaped, a fantastic feel and a great price. These are lead-free crystal made in France and designed by Philippe Jamesse, the highly respected sommelier at the great Les Crayeres restauraunt in Riems. 450ml - mouth blown non lead crystal. This is the most exciting new piece of glassware that we have found at K&L in many years, and the very best thing that we have to enjoy Champagne from. Philippe Jamesse is the Sommelier at Chateau Les Crayeres in Reims, the luxury destination for the Champagne region. He's tasted more great Champagne thoughtfully than almost anyone in the world, and partnered with Reims glassware manufacturer Gerhard Lehmann to produce one of the greatest glasses ever made for Champagne. The tulip shape of this glass allows for a very pretty stream of bubbles to develop from the bottom of the glass, while the generous 450ml size allows room for the aromas to develop. Traditional flutes are too narrow at the top for one to smell the wine, and pour the wine in a very narrow stream across the tongue. Regular wine glasses make Champagne look flat. The Jamesse gets it just right!
