Amazing gadget that lets you pour from a bottle without uncorking it. Very damn smart.

I'd still end up finishing every bottle I start, though.

Isn't this effectively a smaller-scale Enomatic?
I didn't tip at Per Se either.

Boxes might seem to offer this advantage, but if you finish every box you start, you're in trouble.

Although it says it is not for use with sparkling wine it would be kind of fun to try. Wear safety glasses.

Sure, but now you can refill the fancy ones and sell them for a good price.

They are employing the Coravin at The NoMad, which may be a good excuse to revisit the restaurant.  According to The New York Times, it's one of only 'a dozen or so' restaurants in America using the Coravin.

I scanned the wine list, and The NoMad is indeed offering a 'reserve glasses' list 'using Coravin technology'.  Some examples:

 

  domaine Dujac, Charmes-Chambertin, 2007 ... $100

  Alain Hudelot-Noëllat, Vosne-Romanée, 'Les Beaumonts', 2005 ... $80

  Tenuto San Guido, Sassicaia, 1999 ... $130

  Jean-Paul et Jean-Luc Jamet, Côte-Rôtie, 2006 ... $50

  R. López de Heredia, Viña Bosconia Gran Reserva, 1976 ... $110

  château d'Yquem, 1999 ... $90

 

Still fairly steep prices, of course, and not all the vintages offered are of the best.  But I do hope the technology and the practice spread, at least to every upmarket restaurant in town.

Crazy talk.

Why would the douches want a glass rather than the whole bottle?

We call them Louis XIII douches up my way.


Jazz is musical improvisation; it is the art of the moment. In the recording of jazz, the inspiration and inventiveness of this moment is made permanent by technology, giving pleasure many years after the performance.
