In 1993, Master Sommelier Guy Vialis introduced the Chateau Laguiole® Classic, the first genuine waiter-style Laguiole corkscrew. Since its inception, Chateau Laguiole® has become a favorite among elite sommeliers worldwide and remains the top-selling and most counterfeited high-end waiter-style Laguiole corkscrew globally. Rest assured, all authentic Chateau Laguiole corkscrews, like this one, are 100% Made in France.
Included Black Sheath: The authentic Chateau Laguiole black belt sheath, favored by numerous waiters globally, fits belts up to 2.5" wide. Each sheath, crafted from meticulously chosen genuine cowhide, is produced by Max Capdebarth in France.
Stamina wood is a laminate made of veneers that have been dyed, then impregnated with phenolic resin, and compressed under high pressure and heat.
Although the pre-2020 Chateau Laguiole classic charmed countless wine aficionados, it displayed certain limitations. The post-2020 version not only touts considerable improvements in the end product's quality but also features several striking visual distinctions worth noting.
Important note: When buying a Chateau Laguiole without a smooth bottom bolster (the section containing the foil cutter), you may end up owning one of two variants:
1) An older version of a Chateau Laguiole classic model.
2) A fake Chateau Laguiole reproduction made in China.
Since 2020 all genuine Château Laguiole corkscrews come with a registration card to be validated online. This is the only assurance of their authenticity and warranty.
