Typeglasses & vessels
Also known as
small wine glass
The claret glass was specified to contain claret wine. Claret was a British term to describe what was originally essentially a rosé wine from Bordeaux (clairet in French,) but, by the advent of the cocktail, had simply come to mean red Bordeaux wine. The claret glass was traditionally small, often with a slight flare at the lip. In later years, the term claret was used somewhat less frequently and the glass became more balloon-shaped.
