Only a Frenchman could figure out how to do remove the cork from a bottle of wine without a corkscrew.

I couldn't understand a word he said other than a "voila" or two- Was it necessary to rap the bottom of the bottle with the shoe before placing the bottle in the shoe and then banging it against the wall?

John, he said that one can slap the shoe against the bottle, but that the shoe IN the bottle against the wall would be easier.
He had a lot of time on his hands, and after each variation he had to finish the bottle of course......

It is just a matter of pressure. Since the you create a shock wave at the bottom which have a bigger diameter that the top where diameter is smaller, you get enough force to move the cork.

I'm not doing that to my 1999 Chateau Rothschild or Ch Pavie. I'll use a cork screw or wait because I would be horrified if the sediment ruined a 300.00 bottle of wine.

Salute,
Karen
