What decanting does is bring the wine in contact with air. The virtue of this oxygenation is that it speeds up and intensifies the release of the wine's aroma: not something to deprive yourself of!
Method:
1. Fetch the wine from your cellar approximately two hours before the meal to bring it gradually to room temperature.
2. Select a simple and attractive decanter.
3. Pour the wine slowly into the decanter, if possible allowing it to run down the inner surface.
Young wines should be decanted approximately an hour before the meal, as this helps to soften the wine, make it less sharp and give it body.
Older wines should be decanted very gently, just before the meal, as this allows the sediment and less to be removed.
