If Three Michelin-Starred French Laundry Can’t Saber a Bottle of Champagne



That poor cook holding the damn bottle!
What a waste of good champagne.


I wonder if that bottle was just too big to saber.



How dangerous and wasteful. Poor cook holding the bottle, yeah.


What $2K would have done for some poor family.


So sloppy and dangerous, guy looked like this was his first time sabering.


Looks to me like he did it right the first time, but because the neck was so big only part of the bead lip chipped off.

Since there was no lip there, the next two strokes had no effect. They should either have turned the bottle or just given up and pulled the cork.

Then he started chopping down, which was idiotic.
