Reply to "What does a crumbling cork say about storage conditions?"

I can't find the thread but I have heard the same thing on some of the super sweet wines. I had spoken to a retailer who had been selling German rieslings, Tokaji etc for 20-30 years and he said that wines with super high sugar levels (think Aszu Essencia or true Ezssencia) should be stored upright as the sugar corrodes the cork. Haven't heard a definitive answer- if anyone knows please let me know as I have a few bottles of these and right now they are on their side.
