Quandary Resolution 3065
oenophile, sixth sense, Lammas, melismatic
On August 1st, Lammas Day (erroneously translated as Le Jour des Lammas), France's most famous sommeliers and assorted oenophiles gathered in Chateauneuf du Pape to compete in the Winelympics, a contest to identify the origins of one thousand unlabelled bottles of wine, with some deploying their considerable nostrils to the task, and others summoning their sixth sense through eyes closed and a long melismatic chant.
