Lehmann Glass, the truth is in the glass

Sep 18, 2020 • 1 min

Taste and experience the deeper truth of a wine: this is the challenge that has been met by premium glassmaker, Lehmann Glass, for the ultimate pleasure of the senses.

If we believe the old saying that “In wine there is truth” (“In vino veritas”), then we also know that the truth of a wine is in the glass, as Talleyrand was so very well aware!

« Before bringing this precious nectar to our lips, we hold the glass up and examine it, inhale its aromas for some time, place the glass back down on the table… and then talk about it! »
Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord
said to have possessed the finest wine collection (and best restaurant) in Paris, when referring to Château Haut-Brion, of which he was once the owner

For Gérard Lehmann, who has been producing glassware for over 30 years (and in the Champagne region itself), the objective of the glass is to reveal the most intimate expression of a wine, to enhance the palette of colours, aromas and flavors that a wine develops, whether in its youthful vigour or its evolved maturity.

In their quest for excellence, Gérard Lehmann and Gérard Basset (World’s Best Sommelier 2010) have combined their expertise with that of premium glassmaker, Lehmann Glass, in order to bring us a range of glasses that epitomise both the art of fine dining and the art of winemaking.

They have created the Signature Collections in partnership with three of the wine industry’s biggest names:

Arnaud Lallement, chef at l’Assiette Champenoise in Reims (3 Michelin stars)

Fabrice Sommier, head sommelier and restaurant director at the Georges Blanc restaurant group in Vonnas (3 Michelin stars)

Philippe Jamesse, former head sommelier at Domaine les Crayères in Reims (2 Michelin stars)
