Decanter advice please

I also use a Pyrex jug for double decanting…

@szaki1974 Funnel or no funnel?

I don’t filter it, but do use a funnel (plastic… IKEA)

Thanks! It was a bit of a punt because I went staight in for 6 on the basis of recommendations on here. It’s very good. Really pleased.

I’ve gone in for the Marsannay on the EP offer…fingers crossed!

Incredible value. Cheers :wine_glass:


Resurrecting this old thread to ask if anyone has a magnum decanter recommendation?

Looking for a 50th birthday present for a wine-loving ‘man who has everything’. I figure a magnum decanter is so indulgent even he can’t have bought himself one.

Other suggestions welcome! Budget up to £300 - a couple of other friends are keen to chip in - I’m not that generous.

Riedel make.a magnum size version of their Vinum Cabernet decanter. The bottle size ones are great (I have two) so suspect the bigger version will be good too. I also have a Dartington magnum claret jug which looks pretty impressive when filled!

I tend to use this over the others I have simply because it does the job and goes into the dishwasher
Paid £15 last year

These are the two magnum decanters I have. Riedel Decanter Ultra Magnum
Riedel 'Cabernet' Magnum Decanter
Both are great but the wine society link one is much easier to clean!
Possibly get him that and a really nice magnum to go with it?

If you’re OK with something a bit quirky on the table, you could try a lab flask (also search for conical flask). Designed for heavy traffic, so it takes the knocks and easily goes in the dishwasher. Good shape for cleaning & comes in various sizes up to 2L. Some have narrower necks, so better to get a wider one. Depending on how wide is too wide at the bottom, I think it satisfies your 4 required qualities, above.
