Richard Brendon x Jancis Robinson Water Carafe
This is the bottle-shaped old wine decanter without the stopper, an understated and versatile water carafe that follows the form of the Wine Glass and the Water Glass to create a beautiful and refined suite. It also fits in the fridge door, keeping your water - or white wine - perfectly chilled.
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 Wine Glass is at the heart of the collection and has been specifically designed to offer the best tasting experience for every wine, whatever its colour, style or strength, including Champagne, port, sherry and beyond. The stemmed glass is joined by a stemless Water Glass and two decanters, each of which has been mouth-blown by master craftspeople in Europe using beautifully bright lead-free glass.
Perfect for everyday use, the carefully designed shape of the ultra-fine tulip-shaped bowl of the stemmed Wine Glass allows the wine to breathe and captures its array of aromas, enhancing the experience of every sip. The bottle-shaped Old Wine Decanter allows for decanting off the sediment while limiting the wine’s surface area, minimising potential oxidation of the wine. It is also sold without the stopper to make an attractive Water Carafe. The generous Young Wine Decanter has plenty of space for a young wine to be swirled and aerated, accelerating the maturing process and allowing the flavours of a younger vintage to develop and mellow in the decanter. The bowl is also large enough to accommodate a magnum. To complete the collection, the accompanying Water Glass just so happens to exactly mimic the shape of the bowl of the Wine Glass.
As well as being functionally perfect, the Jancis Robinson collection has been meticulously designed to look and feel refined, elegant and timeless. The curves from the wine glass run throughout the collection ensuring all of the pieces sit perfectly together. The ultra-fine, but remarkably strong, mouth-blown glass puts the wine drinker in intimate contact with the wine, while creating perfectly balanced pieces which cannot be matched by even the best machine-blown glass.
