Bourgogne wines Glossary

Form of clay, with similar properties to fuller's earth, used as finings on account of its capacity to trap suspended matter (especially proteins) which otherwise would make the wine cloudy (See Limpidity) It is not used with red wines because it is detrimental to intensity of colour.
