The Chateau Laguiole Grand Cru series was created to satisfy the need for a stylish and more durable opener. The Grand Cru has the same characteristic as the classic, with an added touch of elegance, and is more suitable for heavy-duty use (more than 20 bottles a day). Chateau Laguiole corkscrews are considered by many to be the finest handmade wine openers in the world. Created by Master Sommeliers Guy Vialis in 1993 the Chateau Laguiole was the first true waiter-style Laguiole corkscrew on the market.
Since it debuted (with only one model that sold 80,000 units the first year) this famed wine opener has been the favorite by most of the world's best sommeliers and, to this day is the most sold (and imitated) of all high-end waiter-style Laguiole corkscrews.
All Chateau Laguiole sold by Laguiole Imports are certified genuine and Made in France.
