Dominique and his new assistant Tom are having a lot of fun with his Coravin machine. This handy gadget uses a very thin medical grade needle to inject argon gas through the cork into a bottle of fine wine and extract a glass. The bottle returns to the cellar and is revisited when a second glass is called for. The argon permits the wine to evolve exactly as it would have done if left in peace. This system suits those of our clients whose mantra is “drink less – drink better” to whom we can offer around 18 wines including a glass of Leoville Barton 1998, Tignanello 1998 or 2012 Chassagne Montrachet “Caillerets” from Paul Pillot.
