When to Drink Clos l'Eglise, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Clos l'Eglise needs some time before it can be enjoyed. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 2 hours 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. Clos L'Eglise is usually better with at least 8-10 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Clos L'Eglise offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 10-30 years of age after the vintage.
