Wine importer and "Dean" of American wine competitions
It works! Well! The Durand combines two very tried and proven technologies. While it will work on any cork, it is nearly essential for older corks in prized bottles.
Grand Régent, Commanderie de Bordeaux
… your vintage cork remover system has been put to a successful test … twice. It is novel and unique, but most importantly it works!!! Thank you!
“The opener worked better than anyone thought and the old wines that were sacrificed in the name of research were magnificent.”
Dr. Feelgood on Mark Squire's Bulletin Board on eRobertParker.com
“Every time a really old cork fractures on a bottle great wine and puts small pieces in the bottle, I wish for this device. The one time I was able to use the device, I was able to remove a very old poorly conditioned cork in one piece despite a huge lateral fracture in the cork.”
