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.
I see that the surgeon is taking notes, but her technique with the orbitoclast is...original.
I for one am concerned that the patient has been asked to hold the leucotome until the surgeon needs it. That does not look like sterile procedure to me.
That it one bloody great big leucotome, no matter where he's rubbing it. Perhaps it's Freeman"s mallet?
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy with Gage's tamping iron?
Which reminds me (via the usual tangential process of associations) that the Literature Wall in Vilnius now includes a plaque immortalising Thomas Harris and "Silence of the Lambs". Apparently because the book characterises Hannibal Lecter as being Lithuanian in his origins.
