No moment produces as much anxiety for wine lovers as pulling a cork on a precious old bottle. A cracked, deteriorated cork can crumble into the wine, marring what should be a joyous moment. Enter the Durand, an ingenious device constructed specifically for older bottles: It can remove even the most fragile corks without incident. And it will pay for itself if one cherished bottle is preserved.
