This is a generous and bold decanter for young wines needing aeration and maximum surface area for the wine. The long neck allows for a strong grip that will allow you to swirl the wine energetically, allowing oxygen to encourage and hasten a young wine’s evolution and mellow the flavors. The bowl is also large enough to accommodate a magnum. Stands 9.1" high.
Pairing wine expertise and refined design, the Jancis Robinson collection is the result of a truly collaborative cross-disciplinary partnership between the celebrated product designer Richard Brendon and world-renowned wine expert Jancis Robinson.
“The most respected wine critic and journalist in the world.” – Decanter magazine
Jancis Robinson has been writing about wine since 1975. She now writes weekly for the Financial Times and daily for JancisRobinson.com and is responsible for many of the standard reference books on wine, including The Oxford Companion to Wine, Wine Grapes and, with Hugh Johnson, The World Atlas of Wine. In 1984 she was the first person outside the wine trade to pass the rigorous Master of Wine exams and in 2003 was awarded an OBE by Her Majesty the Queen, on whose cellar she now advises. Jancis loves and lives for wine in all its glorious diversity, generally favoring balance and subtlety over sheer mass. Her desire to demystify the world of wine is the driving force behind the award-winning website, and a catalyst for the Jancis Robinson collection in collaboration with Richard Brendon.
