Back around 69 I inventoried a liquor store that the multi-millionaire owner was getting rid of. They held out a bottle of French wine from 1874, the most expensive bottle in the store. We sat around and the manager/sommelier and he served us all a bit. It was corked.
Yes, old vintages must be re-corked. Hard to age something that old. I had a Jeroboam of "Cigare Volante" almost 18 years old and was devastated to discover it had turned. The cork failed to seal. A major disappointment!
