Why is it that every place that does nachos stacks the chips so high and piles everything else on the topmost layer of chips.

If I make them at home, I make absolutely sure every layer of chips...

No holes in them. Not sure what the store uses them for, if they are their real corks or tasting corks. They seem to always have a pile of them around in great condition though for me.

I haven't made anything long enough to store longer than 3-6 months yet. At some point I'll invest in a floor corker, as it seems that would fix the problem. But for now, no leakage with the used...

Not for this batch. The flavor was spot on for me, not too strong but still a nice little warmth to it, even without backsweetening. If the cinnamon fades after some time in the bottle, my next...

Unsure of backsweetening method

When the time comes to backsweeten a cleared wine, I'm unsure how to best proceed. I've never attempted this before.

A little insight would be great and help set my fears of a ruined batch aside!...

Just my opinion, but I've never seen montrachet do anything but streams of bubbles. Definitely didn't seems to have that much pressure coming through. To each their own though.
