Place dl (5 fl oz or U.S. cup) each of white wine and vinegar in a pan and reduce by half; add 8 dl (1⅖ pt or U.S. cups) Ordinary Velouté and allow to simmer for a few minutes. Finish the sauce away from the heat with 100 g ( oz) Shallot Butter and ½ tbs each of chopped chervil, tarragon and chives.
