Chateau Laguiole Melchior Ironwood Handle

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 3 reviews

The Chateau Laguiole Melchior (pronounced "mel-key-or") is the latest evolution of the famed brand. A variant of the Grand Cru series, this model has a wider full handle. 

The original Grand Cru model, which this model is based on, features a top bolster (the metal part where the screw enters the handle). The main reason the Grand Cru was introduced was to offer a more durable wine opener. Although the new Chateau Laguiole 2020 Classic model's construction is as strong as the Grand Cru, this series continues to be offered.

The Chateau Laguiole waiter-style corkscrew was created in 1993 by Master Sommeliers Guy Vialis and was the first real waiter-style Laguiole-style corkscrew on the market. Since it debuted, the Chateau Laguiole brand has been the favorite among some 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 genuine Chateau Laguiole corkscrews like this one are 100% Made in France.

At 18000 ml (18 liters/4.75 gallons), the "Melchior" is the largest production bottle size available in the market today. To put it in perspective, it contains the equivalent of 24 standard bottles of wine, and you could fill 144 glasses with just one bottle. 

Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) - One of the world hardest wood and most difficult to work with due to its density.

This increasingly rare wood comes from dead trees that have been left to dry in the desert heat for decades. As it starts to fossilize, the wood turns reddish brown with a golden hue and beautiful veining. The wood from this very slow growing tree can be well over 100 years old. Harvested in Arizona or Northwestern Mexico.

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.
