The Durand - proptrækkeren til ældre vine

The Durand er den ultimative proptrækker til ældre vine, hvor der er risiko for, at proppen knækker - et "must have" for både den seriøse vinsamler og den professionelle sommelier.

The Durand har kombineret den klassiske proptrækker med "Butlerens ven" eller "ah-so"-proptrækkeren og trækker fint selv ret skrøbelige propper op i ét stykke.

Proptrækkeren hører til i den dyre ende, men den er også patenteret og lavet i de bedste og mest solide materialer. Dens vigtigste værdi består dog i, at den redder proppen på de dyrebarer flasker, man møjsommeligt har gemt i kælderen til den helt rigtige lejlighed.

    There is an art to pulling an old cork, which is far more fragile than its modern counterpart. Paulo Pong therefore used The Durand corkscrew, which is specially designed for old and fragile wines.

    Wine Spectator

    Whenever you extract a cork from an old bottle, there’s always the danger of the cork breaking or falling into the wine. Serious sommeliers and collectors have various tricks for preventing this from happening, and one of the best is to twist in a traditional corkscrew to keep the cork in one piece, and then use a two pronged Ah-So cork puller to get the whole thing out. The Durand, designed by Atlanta collector Mark Taylor, delivers both pieces in one package so that they fit together properly and securely. That, combined with the decent heft of the device, makes it feel stable. Testing proved that it works. The only tricks are rocking the blades of the Ah So as you inset them, and getting that first twist started. But with The Durand, at least you can be sure the cork won’t disintegrate and crumble into your bottle.

    Vinous - Antonio Galloni

    The Durand brings together elements of the traditional corkscrew and the Ah-so. It is an absolute essential for anyone who enjoys opening and drinking older wines. The Durand is simply a must-have.
