When to Drink Chateau Le Jurat, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Le Jurat needs just a bit of time before it can be enjoyed. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 1 hour. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume.

Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Le Jurat is usually better with at least 2-3 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Le Jurat offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 3-9 years of age after the vintage.

Serving Chateau Le Jurat with Wine and Food Pairings

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

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