Soirée is a glass globe that fits into the tops of wine bottles that acts as a decanter. When the wine is poured, it swirls through the globe before it goes into the wine glass.
I had the pleasure of trying out the Soirée thanks to Marshall Coffy, the Sales Director.
I asked him for tips on which wines to try it with.
He replied, “Soirée is perfect for aerating wines that are tightly structured, have a high alcohol content, or wines that are muted. For instance, “new world” wines from warm climates will have an enhanced bouquet and show richer flavors when poured with a Soirée. Yet, even “Old World” wines or white wines will show heightened attributes despite common belief. Young new world wine however, will present the most dramatic effect.”
I sampled several wines with the Soirée, side-by-side the un-decanted versions. Glasses poured through the Soirée were indeed fuller and “juicier.”
I also love how the Soirée comes with its own little stand, perfect for storing upright in a cabinet or even displaying on a kitchen counter or shelf.
