When to Drink Chateau Ferriere, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Ferriere can be enjoyed on the young side with decanting. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 1-2 hours, give or take. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Chateau Ferriere is usually better with at least 7-8 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Ferriere offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 10-02 years of age after the vintage.

Serving and Decanting Chateau Ferriere, with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips

Chateau Ferriere is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

Chateau Ferriere is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Ferriere is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta as well as cheese.

The Villars family also owns Chateau Chasse Spleen in Moulis, Chateau Haut Bages Liberal in Pauillac, Chateau Domeyne in St. Estephe and Chateau La Gurgue which is also located in the Margaux appellation.
