Decant all the wines!
I'm so mesmerized by the gif I forget which wine needs decanting.
Decant (almost) all the wines!
Decant whenever the spirit moves you. Unless a wine is very, very old (we're talking 35 years or older) and fragile, Chabot says, decanting is a good idea. And it's not limited to reds: Whites benefit equally from being poured into a vessel before serving. "It looks great. It elevates the wine and makes anything fancy," Chabot says. You should always decant a young wine to aerate it, Chabot says, and to get sediment out of old ones.
What does aeration do?
