We had been thinking about getting the Coravin for a while but was put off by the initial expense and added cost of the consumables (cartridges). What helped to decide it for us was a recent trip to the Bordeaux region where we spent a week touring a number of chateaus. We were lucky to have gotten a private tasting at L'Intendant, an exceptional shop in the city of Bordeaux and they offered Coravin pours. Plus, we have also seen more local restaurants use the Coravin for their nicer bottles with the wine really tasting great.
We test drove the unit with a side-by-side tasting of some of our reserve Bordeaux bottles out of our cellar. We watched the 5 minute online video instructions suggested in the enclosed pamphlet and it was every bit as easy and as simple as it looked, with easy to control pours and flow speed at a reasonable rate. The construction is solid and not overly complex.
We marked the bottles noting the date and put them back into the wine fridge. We'll keep an eye on the bottles and see how they hold up.
A small nit is that the case does not hold all of the items shipped in the package and so we are actually storing the unit in the box. Also, a few drops of wine bead up on top of the cork and can drip onto the table cloth/counter/floor while you're pouring if you're not paying attention.
Highly recommend for those wanting to have a glass or tasting of a special wine without having to drink up the whole bottle.
