What is a claret glass?

Answer

A claret glass is specifically designed to hold claret wine, a purplish-red wine originating from the Bordeaux region of France. Claret is a dry wine known for its delicate bouquet.

Claret wine glasses are designed to concentrate the aroma of the wine within the glass. Therefore, the traditional claret wine glass holds between 4 to 6 ounces of claret wine and features straight sides and a flared lip. The diameter of a claret wine glass is about 1/2-inch to 1-inch smaller than the diameter a burgundy wine glass to allow the claret wine drinker to experience each subtle flavor note within the glass of wine.
