Yes, quite a few people recommended this Marsanne, so I thought I’d give it a go- and if I like it, will definitely invest in a case for ‘aging’. I must confess, though, that other than about 5 bottles over the last few years, I haven’t really aged anything (other than aged myself). I am very much a “drink today, for who knows if I can drink tomorrow” sort of person. Not super sophisticated, I admit!
I think I’m still at the stage of my learning where I want to try as many different wines as possible- so as to develop my palate, and understand better what I like/don’t like; I feel that aging wine in a more considered (rather than sporadic) way will be the next stage of learning for me.
Now to practice patience and mindfulness…
I wish I could say I was collecting wine in a “considered” way - I think I have to admit it’s pretty random. I do enjoy looking at wines, tasting them, buying them but at the same time am always feeling under a slightly puritanical pressure not to drink too much. As a result my supply inevitably increases over time so I always buy wine thinking it will be with me for at least months, but more likely years!
On the plus side I could also survive quite a long siege!
