Red Wines, Rhone & South of France, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, France
We love half bottles (DEMI/0,375l) to get access to young wines and to see how they are developing. You can taste the wines but don’t have to finish a 0,75l bottle from a young wine. On the other hand you can arrange a small blind tasting with 2-3 DEMI bottles and don’t have too much wine for a small group. And given the price development of some wines to open a bottle is sometimes an „investment“ but with a half bottle the hurdle is lower.
We also drink mature wines from half bottles just for pleasure and have very good experience with it. Half bottles if stored in good conditions (humidity and air controlled dark cellar) are evolving beautifully and we don’t have the experience that they mature “too” early.
