    err, what happened to the “more info…”
    Looks very like what I found when as I prepared to open Oliver Leflaive’s Auxey-Duresses 2008…

      More info did follow in several postings Philip.
      Yes it’s an Ardea, first used in Burgundy by Olivier Leflaive in 07 I think. It might be the ideal seal, but it’s a nightmare to extract then doesn’t come off the worm of my corkscrew!

    Bill — I’ve had no problem getting the Ardea off the corkscrew. Are you using a non-teflon corkscrew?

    I use an uncoated steel opener for all non-cork seals and have no problem.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
