Clef du Vin wine ager

Can someone please tell me how the Clef du Vin works.

  1. Hi, lay:

    Search Clef du Vin and you will find another thread. There is no clear explanation of what it does, and strong disagreement whether it "works" or not. [Edit: It appears that the heated discussion was pulled down by the Mods; too bad, there was some good information there].

    I have one, have used it quite a bit, and think it works well with some wines. But I cannot explain the chemical/organoleptic mechanism(s).

        Wow, that was a very interesting thread. Thanx for pulling it up.
