Lehmann

With over 30 year´s glass making experience, Lehmann Glass draws inspiration from the world´s most distinguished wine experts and combines it with specialist glass manufacturing techniques to create a unique printed glassware range. Built on a passion for wine, the glassware offers an enhanced oenological experience through innovative wine glass shapes, which promote taste and aroma whilst respecting the millennia-old tradition of wine tasting. Lehmann Glass offers customised wine glasses and printed flutes. In collaboration with Gérard Basset - OBE, Master Sommelier, Master of Wine, Wine MBA, Sommelier of the Year 2010, Decanter Man of the Year 2013 - Lehamnn Glass presents a collection of oenologically perfect glassware, which Waiter´s Friend are proud to represent in the UK.

The Perfect Glass?

He took his idea to local glass manufacturer Lehmann and together they created an elongated glass, rounded in the middle and tapering towards the top. At its widest point, their Grand Champagne glass measures 88mm, and even the most modest of the series, the Initial, measures 72mm.

Jamesse discovered later, together with Gérard Liger-Belair, a physicist at the University of Reims, that ‘the spherical shape of the glass, which also encourages vertical movement, respects the role of the mousse’.

Each bubble carries aroma to the surface. In his glasses this is a ‘progressive extension along the curve of the glass which favours first a gradual then a stretched ascent, allowing each bubble to burst at the widest point to free its flavours and express aromatic subtlety’.

The greater surface allows more bubbles to burst simultaneously while their aromas are captured within the tapering top. ‘We introduced the glass in the restaurant in 2008,’ Jamesse recounts. ‘Initially diners were a little shocked, but once they tasted from it they realised the difference.’

The glasses are popular: ‘We have used them for the past three years at Ruinart,’ says chef de cave Frédéric Panaïotis. At Roederer, they have even replaced the house’s owndevised tulip-glasses for all tasting, blending and entertaining. Concurrently, others had similar ideas. Piper-Heidsieck, Moët & Chandon and Krug, for instance, collaborated with Austrian glass manufacturer Riedel to create bespoke glasses tailored to specific wines. Krug’s Joseph glass, named after the house’s founder, was ‘created to enhance every aspect of the sensorial Krug experience’, according to cellarmaster Eric Lebel.
