Nonsense, the bottle says 1 year but its a caged and corked so it will last much longer. I'm looking forward to letting them sit well beyond then and seeing how they develop year by year.

I've got some in the cellar that I plan on leaving as long as I can stand looking at them every time I go in there. I think 5 years is considered the max.

Meh.. I let them warm up and always considered the "just cracked a beer" sound when opening them to be a sign of life, especially if it's accompanied by a foam over.
