Pouring a wine in a decanter allows oxygenation, and "wakes up" the wine, so that it unfolds its full personality and flavour.
Decanting "opens up" a young or tannic wine to release its aromas, while in the case of older vintages, it enables the separation of the liquid from the sediment. Decanting also presents the wine in a glass in all its glory, highlighting its colour nuances.
Read Anne McHale MW’s article discussing whether or not one should decant a particular wine.
Berry Bros and Rudd offer a range of decanters to enhance your enjoyment of wine.
All decanters are subject to special delivery terms regardless of whether they are part of a wine order. Decanters are despatched on a next working day service (free of charge with orders over £100).Please note that deliveries to Northern Ireland, The Isle of Man, The Isle of Wight, The Scilly Isles and some areas of Scotland, whilst free of charge, may take longer and therefore the Next Day, Saturday, Specified days and AM delivery services are not available in these areas.
We regret that decanters cannot be sent to overseas addresses.
