Peugeot Clef du Vin

If you are anything like wine budget is...well...just that; budget. While we totally love and appreciate a fine wine, what we appreciate and what we can afford are often not in the same ballpark. Actually, they're so far out of the ballpark that we doubt they're even the same sport. Leave it to the French to make an instrument that improves wine, in that because of a chemical reaction that occurs between the alloy dot and the wine, it ages in seconds. What ends up then happening is the acceleration of reduced oxygen,alteration of the acids and tannins, and it is said that one second in the wine simulates one year of aging. It's no guarantee that the plonk you buy will become the next Petrus, but it just might bring forth some nice qualities that'll make Two Buck Chuck taste like Duckhorn. Available here.
