During aging, a yeast haze develops at the surface and protects the wine from oxidation in contact with depriving the ambient air. It is these that allow yeast to yellow wine mysteriously get its organoleptic characteristics so complex. Once the aging, it is placed in specific and unique bottle called ""clavelin"".
