    773 vues *Come on a wine & food tour with us!* --- The launch of the new revolutionary, according to the launchers, champagne closure med from plastic and aluminium, no longer made from natural cork. It is called Maestro and is made by Alcan and the first champagne producer to use it is Champagnes Duval-Leroy. Presented by Duval-Leroy's international marketing and sales director. Not a cork, but a cap (capsule). You use a lever to open it and you don’t risk getting the cork in your eye. You will still have the traditional champagne pop that everyone connects to opening a bottle of champagne. It is in fact a crown cork (beer bottle cap) under a plastic cover. The closure has been developed by Alcan Packaging Capsules in collaboration with Champagnes Duval-Leroy. It will eliminate all problems with corked bottles and is also much easier to open than the traditional cork. If it will be accepted by the customers remains to be seen. It is the same closure that is used for almost all champagnes when they are “sur lattes” aging in the cellars of the champagne houses. The wine in the very first bottle is Clos des Bouveries in Vertus of the vintage 2004 from Champagne Duval Leroy, one of their prestige cuvees. It is cultivated almost organically.
