Aside from the (possible) advantage of keeping the cork moist, it's also a matter of practicability. Easier to store (w/r/t access) than vertically.
15€ is a steal for this wine. I'd recommend storing the second bottle for at least four more years.
Why should horizontal storage be more practical. I am storing a large amount of my screwcap wines vertically in a DIN heavy duty racking system. Five bottles in a row, ten to twelve rows, depending on the type of bottle. Doesn't get much more practical than that.
