I have a bottle of 2004 Dom Perignon that I want to store for a special occasion. (Received as an award at work - yay for me! ) What is the best way to store it to preserve its quality and flavor? Thanks for any tips!

Dunno, I'm sure there are better places to look it up than here. I seem to recall something about storing chamaign completely upside down, so the lees get ejected... nah, that's before it's corked. Probably just on it's side in a quiet closet in the basement.
Matt_TO83 saidIf you're going to store wine, it's generally best to keep it in a cool dark space, on its side. This way the contents will keep the cork wet, which stops it from rotting, which would ruin the wine. Rotation of the bottles is apparently important as well, though i'm not sure how frequently it's required.
