  1. Laguiole en Aubrac - gray cedar wood sommelier saber - Sabrage

    The Sabrage is a special technique to open champagne bottles with a saber (sabre in French), usually used as ceremonial. The saber is slid along the bottle body towards the neck with a dry shot. The force of the blade that strikes the lip of the neck is sufficient to break the glass and separate the neck neck from the bottle collar which, together with the cap, is fired away by the force of the gas contained in the wine. If applied correctly, the technique is effective with any sparkling wine.

    This practice became popular in Napoleonic France when the army visited the aristocratic domains of the empire. The period was shortly after the French Revolution and the saber was the army's light cavalry election weapon, the ussari. Given the many victories the army had received, there were many festivals during which it was easy to open the bottles with a comfortable and easy-to-reach medium. It seems that during one of these celebrations Napoleon himself said "Champagne! Victory is a merit; defeating a need ", thus encouraging its use and practice.

    The ritual of opening a bottle of champagne or sparkling wine with a saber ( saber in French ) is very old , dating back to when the officers of the French Royal Guard celebrated the victories on the field and their promotion by opening bottles of champagne with a sharp blow . It is said that Napoleon himself will enfatizasse the gesture shouting " Champagne In victory you deserve it, in defeat you need it ... " . The parade saber from its scabbard slid gently on the neck of the bottle on the side of the coast and freed the cap with the glass that contained it . This type of opening is spectacular and very easy on the eye and can only be done with bottles containing sparkling , because it is thanks to the pressure that they exert wine inside the bottle neck glass that goes away easily from the cap.
