The wine columnist Matt Kramer posted an excellent blog post over on the Wine Spectator earlier in December that I just stumbled upon. In it, he rails against three wine myths. He probably could have found many more such myths, but I like that he took the time to go into more detail for the three he chose:
1) Wine needs “structure”, aka tannins to age well.
2) More expensive wine is better wine.
3) Wine needs to be stored in 70%+ humidity.
None of them are really earth-shattering news, but they do persist so it is nice to have a deeper look at them.
Have a great Sunday!
