SOMMELIERS (1973)The introduction of the SOMMELIERS series in 1973 achieved worldwide recognition. A glass was born that turns a sip into a celebration - a wine’s best friend - fine-tuned to match the grape! We invite you to share this fascinating and unique experience.

The Hennessy qualities require different glass shapes according to their age each designed to reveal a particular set of characteristics. The youthful character of their standard quality V.S.O.P. needed to be matched by a glass that could maximise its fruit, integrating acidity and alcoholic strength into a harmonious whole.
