Wine lovers, sit up… take notice

At a recent 50+ bottle tasting, I continued to be intrigued about a little device that I’ve used for a few years which gives a hint to the future of a particular wine.  Exploring a wine and wondering when it will be at its peak is difficult.

Alchemy at its best!

Then came the Clef du Vin.  This magical little device when dipped into wine mimics how a wine will develop over time.  Tasting the wine and realizing it seemed very young… One dip of the Clef into the glass, for one second, then a taste – – rounder and smoother finish, softer tannins. According to the white papers, it doesn’t actually age the wine but the alloy provides the essence of aging.

Even my most skeptical wine friends were blown away once they tried it.  I am always amazed.  For me, it was $99 well spent – – thought you might like to know about it.

I purchased mine locally at Wine Enthusiast in Elmsford, but have seen it on many websites, too.
