When to pull the cork
7 Mar 2004 by JR
Victoria, UK: I feel you may have answered this many times before but if so can't find there any resource that gives detailed advice on when to drink cellared wines? I know Decanter gives (very) broad advice on vintages versus regions, Wine magazines occasionally revisit certain wines and that you give suggested drinking windows based on very early tastings. Does anyone collate any of this? Or offer specific chateau/vintage advice based on more recent tastings than at bottling point?...
