This takes place in the Beaujolais at Pascal Brunet, a vigneron whom we visited with Jean Foillard (the two winemakers are long-time friends) : Pascal has just racked (emptied) a metal vat and he is going to open the vat door to take the lees out. Look at this incredible milky color, the lees play a very important role in the early winemaking stage, it feeds the juice/wine with plenty of good elements.
The other incredible thing in this video is that you can see that the outside color of the vat is EXACTLY of the same color than the lees (and every painter knows how difficult it is to settle the right color tone when you want paint according a specific model)....
