Did get the cork out in one piece, sort of. It was tearing apart as I pulled it out, but stayed in one piece and didn't crumble. Creap well past halfway up. The wine was the best bottle I've has, so far, with red and black berries, cherry quickly giving way to dried tobacco, stone, and a whisper of herbs de provence. It improved over the next hour, with soft tannins and a medium finish.
