The bottle is then riddled, so that the lees settles in the neck of the wine bottle...
Manual riddling is still done for Prestige Cuvées in Champagne... mechanised riddling equipment (a gyropalette) is used instead.
Courtesy of Xeni @ boingboing, here are some people who were in too much of a hurry in the morning and forgot to put their masks on.
The rules of society often seem unreasonable. What difference should it make, whether or not you have your mask in place? But over the years I have learned that there is nothing be gained by arguing the point with someone else's prejudices, and it is easier simply to wear the sodding mask and just blend in.
