Zalto Denk-Art Universal Glass
The Zalto Universal glass is recommended for richer, oaked Sauvignon Blancs such as Hughes & Hughes Barrel & Skins, white Graves or Semillon/Sauvignon blends as well as young and non-vintage Champagne. The Zalto Universal is a very good 'all-rounder', designed for all types of wine but in our opinion may not maximize the potential of certain wines quite as much as the Bordeaux or Burgundy glass.
Burgundy is a highly respected wine region based in Eastern France and is world renowned for its dry white wines made from Chardonnay grapes and dry red wines from Pinot Noir grapes. It has a higher number of AOC’s (appellations d’origine controlee) than any other French region and the classifications of wine vary hugely from Grand Cru vineyards down to more non-specific regional appellations. Burgundy has 5 main wine-growing areas; Chablis, Cotes de Nuits, Cotes de Beaune, Maconnais and Cote Chalonnaise and is home to some of the most expensive wines in the world, including those of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, Domaine Leflaive and Domaine Leroy. Wine production in Burgundy operates in 3 ways; through negociants who buy the grapes or wines from smaller producers and sell it on under their own name, via co-operatives (groups of grape-growers) who pool resources to establish a winery for use by all involved or finally by producers who own both vineyards and a winery. The third is more unusual purely due to the costs involved in building and maintaining such an operation. We have a couple of excellent examples of wines from this region – the Nuits St Georges from Clos de la Marechale 2008 and the Domaine Pillot St Aubin 2011 which show both grape varietals at their very best.
