This decanter looks stylish and will suitably grace any dinner table. Watching the wine as it flows down the side of the glass is a real crowd pleaser - great fun. Anybody interested in entertaining should have one.

As you'd expect from Le Creuset, this is a solid item. The decanter itself is beautifully constructed from thick glass, with a very wide base to allow your wine to be exposed to maximum oxygen prior to pouring.

But the real selling point of this decanter is the aerator, which allows the bottle to be inverted over the decanter and slowly (and dramatically) dispense into the decanter, all the while being aerated and oxygenated whilst running down the entire inside of the glassware. This process alone must reduce the breathing time needed of a good wine by a large proportion, but that's not all.

Once decanted the wine is given maximum oxygenation owing to the wide base of the vessel, exposing the maximum area to the atmosphere. The huge difference between the width of the base and the neck also allow any sediment to be left in the decanter rather than ending up in someone's glass.

All in all, a well thought out, quality product which enhances the wine served from it.

Highly recommended.

the combinatioin of a wide bottomed decanter and an aerating stopper means that the wine is conditioned properly before drinking .. highly recommended. a much better arrangement than the stand alone aerator we had before

Looks wonderful, very interesting to use and watch - we use it all the time (when drinking red wine). Had to send the first one back as there was a slight defect in the base, but another one turned up very quickly and was perfect.

Bought 2 as gifts - both recipients happy (Yes they would have told me otherwise - they're family !). Works well and good visual effect when decanting wine. Great for anyone who likes red wine, socialising or both.

This product did not arrive in a Le Creuset box like I have seen in the shops. I thought this was unusual and made me think it was a potential seconds item or potential returned item. I would have expected it to be properly boxed to affirm its authenticity.

It's still a lovely product, but some small air bubbles in the base of the the decanter suggests it may be a seconds item as I suggest above. To be honest, this would make me hesitant to order Le Creuset products through Amazon again, even though I saved money compared to buying it on the high street.

Disappointed as it broke and I can't seem to contact the seller! Shame as I spent a lot of time researching before buying and thought Le Creuset were about a quality product.

I bought this as a present and was really pleased with it. The weight and thickness of the glass as well as the really beautiful shape made it a lovely thing to have at the table. A real quality item. Looks larger than it seems in the picture. The decanting of the wine was straightforward, the bottle easy to position in the decanter, and only taking a minute or so to decant. I know it will get used.

well worth the money. Look incredible as you pour the wine in the fountain. You could taste the different.
The only bad news about it, its you drink more wine!!

Such a simple design, so effective! Changes a everyday wine just by introducing air into something that [ sometimes] tastes completely different.
