The "Clef du Vin" wine key assesses the aging potential of a given vintage and allows the wine enthusiast to purchase wine with confidence, manage the cellar efficiently, and enjoy a young wine without waiting years for it to mature.
As wine naturally ages in the bottle, it undergoes an oxygen reduction process, maturing gradually to its peak of aroma and flavor. The Clef du Vin accelerates the oxygen reduction reactions of specific elements in a controlled and regulated manner. This acceleration softens the wine's structure and allows the aromas and flavors of the wine to be more easily revealed. The Clef du Vin allows you to try a new or unfamiliar wine and judge how its bouquet and taste could mature
, allowing you to make an informed decision on whether or not to invest in that vintage. 7.25"L x 1.5"W. Imported.
- To use, simply dip the dot, which is made of a unique alloy of metals, into wine. Each second of contact in 100mL is equal to one potential year of cellar aging.
- Clef du Vin acts as a catalyst and passes no substance to the wine and works on all types of wines. It will not enhance a mediocre or poor wine.
- Rinse Clef du Vin clean with hot water (no cleansers or detergents).
