Refrigerating Wine - Clarification (unopened)

Thanks Roger C. Bohmrich, MW for answering my question. I should have been clearer. I would like to know if it is better to leave an UNOPENED bottle of white wine in the fridge if it isn\'t consumed (i.e. at a dinner party), or should it be put back into storage?

Current Value/drink Now And Recommended Pairing?

A friend who recently lost her husband passed along to us a bottle of wine they had been saving. The wine is a 1970 Chateau Trimoulet Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe, Red Bordeaux. We are uncertain how it has been stored, however no visable signs of leakage or cork damage. Can you tell us the current value? Should we drink it now - or save it, and any food pairings you could recommend?
