Can a Wine that’s Turned Bad Be Saved?

The great question of oenological sociology… The answer is already known: no, no, and no again. An individual who thought it was a good idea to keep the bottles of wine given to him by a friend over many years had a yen, probably in a fit of boredom, to open one… one that had aged at least 20 years. It was a depressing experience for the palate of the unfortunate, but it did confirm that a wine must be stored in precisely the optimal conditions if its gustative qualities are to be guaranteed intact or changed for the better.

Indeed, an aged wine will never have the same taste as it had during the years of its youth, but it will not necessarily transform itself into plonk if it has been kept according to the rules of the art.
