In the fairly recent past there has been a trend towards using screw tops on wines as opposed to corks. Obviously there will no longer be any issues with corking of the wines. But considering the role of cork over the years to sealing, aging and even taste what is your personal opinion to using screw tops over cork. I would find it difficult to believe that some of the older houses would ever change over if for no other reason the aesthetics of a screw top on a Pomerol or D'Yquem at those prices, or will the function of aluminum vs. cork actually predominate in the long run.
