2008 Château Pierre de Lune St. Émilion Grand Cru Wine Tasting Note


2008 Château Pierre de Lune  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

Not a wine you see often, which is too bad, but I really like it. Round, supple, ripe and filled with lush black cherries, licorice and chocolate, with truffle accents, this is drinking quite well today.

When to Drink Chateau Pierre de Lune, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Pierre de Lune is better with at least 4-6 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Chateau Pierre de Lune is best enjoyed in the first 5-18 years of life.

Young vintages can be decanted for about 1 hour, 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.

Serving Chateau Pierre de Lune with Wine and Food Pairings

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

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