“We tried out the Durand on a bottle of 1971 Camus Mazoyeres Chambertin last night. The wine was excellent, with amazingly intense and elegant sweet fruit and plenty of complexity and length. What would be of more interest to you though is that without the Durand, I would have spent about 15 minutes mucking around with the somewhat moist and crumbly cork, first trying to get it out then trying to filter out all the bits left behind. With the Durand, I fished out the cork in one smooth twist and pull, holding onto the fragile cork at the same time and not one bit of cork was left in the neck of the bottle or in the wine itself. What an amazing tool!”
