Or is it better to decant the entire bottle even if you don't plan to polish off the entire bottle in that one sitting.
Pour the FIRST half into a 375ml bottle to the very top. Use the cork from the freshly opened bottle(that way, you know what it is 3 weeks later), jam it in the 375ml until wine squeezes out. No need for Vacuvins or Nitrogen gas. Put it back into storage.
Use this method also when opening a White & a Red for dinner, but don't want to consume 2 bottles of wine.
