When to Drink Chateau Soutard, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Soutard is better with at least 4-6 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Chateau Soutard is best enjoyed in the first 5-20 years of life.

Young vintages can be decanted for about 1 hour to 90 minutes. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Serving Chateau Soutard with Wine, Food and Pairing Tips

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

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