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

Chateau de Pressac is better with at least 4-6 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage.

Chateau de Pressac is best enjoyed in the first 5-21 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 de Pressac with Wine and Food Pairings

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

Chateau de Pressac is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau de Pressac is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
