Is there a certain Chablis (or other varietal) with insane minerality?

So I have been on a mineral-y wine kick recently. I am looking for a specific producer that you think has the most minerality to it. It can be any verietal really, I just figured chablis would be the go to here.

Which specific bottle will blow me away with minerality?

What old wine do you plan to open this year? via /r/wine

What old wine do you plan to open this year?

I am always a bit worried when opening a older bottle, since so many things could go wrong during its time in the cellar, or it could be corked to begin with.

It's so rewarding when it's still alive and amazing tho!

Had the 2000 Leoville Barton yesterday, a bit disappointed by it's rather nice and complex nose, but then falls short on the palate, the finish fades away a bit too quickly as well.

Newbie with a fancy wine

Hello! I received a bottle of Dom Perignon vintage 1998 still sealed in its box for a wedding gift. I do not appreciate wine enough to open this myself and would rather sell it to someone else.

Couldn't find it in the FAQ's or info, but how do I go about doing that? What's an appropriate price? Any tips?

Update on possible heat damage! via /r/wine

Update on possible heat damage!

So… I had written a post about a possible heat damaged bottle that had expanded and saw some seepage. After two good advices from the community of drinking it as soon as possible it became the main wine for my 25th birthday!

The wine was in perfect conditions, an elegant Cab, plenty of black fruit and the tannins were so smoothed out… Still needed a few more years in the bottle though!

Wine storage temperature issue via /r/wine

Wine storage temperature issue

Currently having an issue with storing temperature… Our home has no below ground portion and the coolest room in the house is a downstairs storage room. We're in southern BC, Canada, so summers are hot and dry, winters cool and wet. Winter isn't s problem. Right now, though, the storage room is at 23C (73F) albeit on a remarkably hot day, but most summer days it's 19-21C (66-70F).

I gather this is approaching the temperature where wine begins to damage. We have a few good bottles but most we'll drink within a year.

So, questions are: how bad is this temperature for long term aging, and how bad will it be for the short term (6-12 months)?

Burgundy producer locations via /r/wine

Burgundy producer locations

I'm currently in the process of buying a 1993 richebourg grand cru from dufouleur pere and fils. I know it's in vosne-romanee but I've seen people post about knowing certain producers locations on the slope and etc. So I was just wondering where this producer is located and how to figure that out for myself in the future. I tried doing research on the producer and can't seem to find much. I'm hoping there is just a map of like every grand cru with all their producers mapped out. That would be legit. Any help is appreciated thanks!
