When to Drink Delas Freres Cote Rotie, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Delas Freres Cote Rotie, when young, should be decanted at least 1-3 hours, give or take, allowing the wines to soften and open their perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Delas Freres Cote Rotie is usually better with 5-12 years of cellaring and should be at its best between 10-20 years of age.
