What's Worse: Killing Babies or Pulling the Plug?

Posted by The Wine Whore |

Would you rather drink a bottle that has passed it's prime or one that hasn't even reached its infancy?

If at all possible (within the confines of my humble fiscal boundries) I will try to purchase multiple bottles of a wine and will often open one fully knowing it hasn't reached it's potential. Its a lot of fun for me to see how they progress and change over time. Going back and comparing notes is fun too.

That is definitely the right way to do it!

What if you had to choose ONE bottle? Would you pick the one that was too young, or too old?

To young for sure.

I think that's how I'd go too! :)

Yep, I would choose the too young wine as well. You may still get some pleasure from it, but a wine that is past its prime will have little to offer.

I guess in the end, I'd rather drink every bottle at its prime... but I probably end up drinking too many before they ever reach this point!
