When to Drink Chateau de Lamarque, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau de Lamarque can be decanted for an average of 1 hour or so. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau de Lamarque is usually better with at least 3-5 years of bottle age.

Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Lamarque offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 4-14 years of age after the vintage.
