        Comments about Coravin 1000 Wine Access System:

        PROS:
        *Ideal for 1 or 2 glasses at a time.
        *Check the development/maturity of wine without wasting a whole bottle.
        *Sample/compare multiple different wines without waste.
        *Indulge in an expensive bottle over several occasions.
        *Superb quality of design & manufacture, and impressive packaging. Flawless.

        CONS:
        *If a wine needs time to breathe it will still need time to breathe.
        *Older wines that have sediment will need time to settle before you access them, or you will need some sort of filter.
        *A drop or 2 of wine will come out of the cork after the bottle is stored horizontally, leaving a sticky spot on the capsule or occasionally on whatever is below.
        *If you use this on a cork that has shrunk or otherwise deteriorated, you are in for a big mess.

        TIPS:
        *Give a quick "puff" of gas before plunging the needle into the cork, to purge the air out of it, otherwise you will inject that air into the wine.
        *I always use the Extra-thin "Vintage Cork" needle, as the corks seal better than with the standard needle.
        *You can access older wines with sediment while keeping them horizontal, although a few drops may come out of the spout immediately, before you can put a glass underneath.

        I have only been using the Coravin since Nov. 2013, so I can't speak to the long-term, but the first bottle I accessed tastes the same now as it did then. But both Robert Parker and Jancis Robinson have compared wines accessed 3 years prior with un-accessed companion bottles, and tasted no difference.

        Since my wife doesn't drink, I never finish a bottle in one sitting unless we have dinner guests. So for me, this is a dream come true.

        Coravin Replaces my Cork-screw

          Comments about Coravin 1000 Wine Access System:

          I am single and until this product came along, I had to resist the urge to open a bottle of wine when I was on my own. I couldn't drink a whole bottle, and I didn't want to waste fine wine. The Coravin Wine Access System allows you to use a syringe in lieu of a cork-screw to access one glass of wine-- when you finish pouring a glass, you remove the syringe and the cork reseals itself. The system works with the use of pressurized inert gas that fills the empty space that was previously filled by the wine you just pouted out. The gas prevents oxidation of the wine The product is said to allow the wine remaining in the bottle to continue to age as it otherwise would have even if the bottle had not been accessed. I have not owned the product long enough to determine whether this last claim is true, but I am thrilled just to be preserving a bottle of wine even though I have accessed it to enjoy a glass.

                • Can Drink The Good Wine
                • Glass Of Wine As You Want

                Comments about Coravin 1000 Wine Access System:

                This is the best wine tool I have. You can have a glass of your good wine at any time and not worry about having to drink the whole bottle or wasting the rest of the bottle. If I think I am going to have a couple of glasses of wine I just dispense into a decanter the amount desired.
