When to Drink Chateau La Fleur Morange Mathilde, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau La Fleur Morange Mathilde is usually better with at least 6-8 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau La Fleur Morange Mathilde offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 7-20 years of age after the vintage.
