A dying accoutrement or a vital item of equipment? Maybe the higher echelons of Bordeaux and Burgundy will retain the cork for evermore? Perhaps the ecological necessities of the Quercus suber forests of Portugal and Spain will sustain it indefinitely, but the simple fact is that the extraction of a cork from a wine bottle is so much more satisfying than turning a screw cap. It is one of life’s most simple joys, with promise of sensual pleasure soon to follow. Makes a grand noise too.
