Aging Wine:

Aging Wine​ melisimeduvin

Wine aging can potentially improve the quality of wine. This distinguishes wine from most other consumables. While wine is perishable and capable of spoiling, complex chemical reactions involving sugars, acids and phenolic compounds (such as tannins) can alter the aroma, color, mouthfeel and taste of the wine. The ability of a wine to age is influenced by many factors, including the grape variety, vintage, wine practices, wine region and winemaking. The condition in which the wine is stored after bottling can also influence the aging of the wine and require significant time and financial investment. The quality of aged wine varies considerably from bottle to bottle, depending on the conditions in which it was stored, the condition of the bottle and the cork. There is an important mystic around the aging of wine, because its chemistry has not been understood for a long time and old wines are often sold at extraordinary prices. However, the vast majority of wine is not aged and even aged wine is rarely aged for a long time, it is estimated that 90% of the wine is intended for consumption within one year of production and 99% of the wine within five years. 3.

How to start your cellar?

How To Start Your Cellar?

You do not know where to start ? Cellar or wine cabinet, it all depends on the space you have and your budget. Once you have the container, garnish it and that's where the serious business begins.
To start your cellar modestly, it is better to focus on a few bottles, some for keeping, others for drinking right away. For example, you can choose to keep forty bottles and have ten under your elbow. In this category, I would put three champagnes (rough for the aperitif enough), four reds (bordeaux, burgundy, rhône, languedoc for example) and three whites (alsace, loire, a sweet). With this you are ready for all situations and all food and wine pairings.
For the bulk of the cellar, we can do this: 20 bottles of Bordeaux vintages (gleaned from our shop…),
This goes very quickly, but if we want to favor aging, it is better to focus on wines that age better, pay attention to the quality of the vintage and its aging prospects. To avoid making mistakes and consult the notes for the different years.
