Le Portteus is a brand that truly understands luxury glassware, and its Red Wine Decanter is no exception. Crafted using traditional mouth-blown glass techniques, this decanter is a beautiful testament to the company’s founders and their descendants’ skill and passion.
What struck me first was how incredibly light the decanter is. Despite its delicate appearance, it feels very balanced in the hand, making it easy to pour. Although getting that last drop requires you to invert the decanter completely, there is very little drip, which is a big plus.
Cleaning the decanter is also a breeze thanks to the cleaning beads, which makes it easy to maintain its pristine appearance. The round cork stopper is a welcome addition, especially when not used, as it prevents dust from infiltrating the decanter.
With wine in the decanter, the round cork stopper protects the wine while allowing air to flow through, enhancing the wine’s flavors and aromas. Overall, the Le Portteus Red Wine Decanter is a stunning piece of glassware that would be a great addition to any wine lover’s collection. It’s easy to use, clean, and, most importantly, enhances the wine-drinking experience. Highly recommended!
