When to Drink Chateau Maucaillou, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Maucaillou is better young with 1 hour or so of decanting. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Maucaillou is usually better with at least 2-4 years of bottle age.

Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Maucaillou offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 3-12 years of age after the vintage.
