Customer Questions #6: Does this need to be decanted?

SOME ADVISE DECANTING EVERYTHING right down to the simplest white, but that’s probably overkill. Decant if: (a) The wine is ancient… to separate it from its sediment; (b) It’s a very young, ‘big’ red… allowing it to ‘breathe’ can soften its tannins and encourage it to be more expressive; or (c) It’s a cheapie screwcapped wine… these sometimes have dodgy egg aromas that ‘blow off’ if you give them air.
