Menu & Louise Christ's
It's no coincidence that decanters through the ages have boasted a broad base: The wider exposed surface boosts aeration of more tannic wines such as Bordeaux, Rhône, Cabernet Sauvignon and Port. Whether you ascribe to this approach or not, the aesthetic quality of a decanter, like this one by Scandinavian designer Louise Christ, is indisputable. Louis considered the ergonomic comfort of the pour, be it by the neck or base. She considered a flow with precision to avoid any dripping. The stainless steel rim can also be removed to prevent bacteria from accumulating in the gap. An update we can appreciate. After all, the only vintage we want is what's inside.
