DonRocks Posted August 13, 2012 Share Posted August 13, 2012 U R Phuck'd The problem is very real and still remains. There's even a term for it now: premox (a portmanteau of "premature" and "oxidation"). (P.S. This was possibly the first article ever written about the subject in a mainstream U.S. publication. Give Todd Kliman credit for taking a gamble with this - I really, really wanted to write the piece, but it wasn't your typical Washingtonian fare.) In the super-duper, ultra-secret, best-in-the-world (no, really) private wine thinktank that I co-founded and co-administer, a new theory is emerging: it may be the bottles themselves, or more precisely, an inconsistency in the manufacture of the bottles (seams, shape, etc.). This post will, understandably, be meaningless to 99.99% of readers, but there are billions of dollars at stake, and this theory has merit because it nicely accounts for the maddening, seemingly physically impossible, symptoms of the situation (e.g., inexplicable variation within a single case of wine). It has been quite awhile since a plausible theory has been proffered, and nothing has ever been able to explain everything. This opens up another interesting avenue to pursue.
