I’m thrilled to share with you that I have another article published in Santé Magazine.
I am sure every wine lover has been asked the same question from their friends. “This wine is (insert any number) years old, is it still good to drink?” I can’t count the times I have been asked this question. It is as if we have a crystal ball that can tell them, yes or no.
Well, we don’t have any magical insight into the bottle itself, but using some basic wine knowledge, we can give a relatively safe recommendation as to whether the liquid inside will be drinkable or not. Remember, it all comes down to science.
In my article, I break down the science of what makes a wine have the ability to age.
What makes a wine have the ability to age? Jules Renard is quoted as “It’s not how old you are, it’s how you are old.” The Earth continues to revolve around the sun, so we are all growing older, but it is fairly obvious that some of us age better than others. That statement is as true with wine as with a human being. So what is the magic that some of us hold that allows us to age more gracefully than others? Why do some wines gain a resounding yea rather than a sorrowful nay?
