    I think he is trolling us. Someone is going to bust a hole in their wall trying this out.

    I wonder what type of footwear he’d recommend for a white wine? (En anglais, s’il vous plait?) ;-)

    I think using the floor would work better. That way you know it is solid and there isnt a chance of wine getting everywhere.

    How about the ceiling – just put your glass underneath!

    Thank you, you don’t know how grateful. Nobody’s ever around when I need a corkscrew for my bottles of wine; .)

    No way!!!! Have you tried it???? This seems crazy!

    For heaven’s sake! If you did that with a decent wine, you’d have a glassful of lees!

    I’d better not catch my butler opening the Margaux this way

    Ah, the kick-ass way to open a bottle of culture.

  14. Warren says . . . | March 26, 2013 / 8:16 am

    There’s nothing new in that: we did the same thing by banging a piece of 2×4 against the bottom of the bottle when I was at university, and that, trust me, was a long ol’ time ago …

    Not good for the wine.

  16. Modem says . . . | August 2, 2013 / 12:18 pm

    WARREN.

    No one said it was new.

    Nothing brings out the snobbery more than Anything To Do With Wine Ever
