Serving and Decanting Mas Grange Blanche with Wine, Food Pairing Tips
Mas Grange Blanche is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. Young vintages can be popped and poured, or decanted for an hour so. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Mas Grange Blanche is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, stewed dishes, sausage and cassoulet. Mas Grange Blanche is also good with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms pasta, eggplant and tomatoes.

Round, forward and already quite tasty, there is ample sweet, dark cherries and licorice with a medicinal edge, think of cough drops, but in a good way.
