very rarely would a open a special bottle by myself and aside from 2 occasions never with * or more. ANd for the record what bottle do you drink with 2-4 people and have a couple of glasses of it?
I answered b but ideally its 2 wine geek friends and I. A good friend of my enjoys wine, has a pretty good palette but has no idea about labels, prices, etc. I have slipped him some serious wine over the years without letting on and he often picks em out as being "on the spot"
More about who than how many for me I guess.
