When to Drink Chateau Monbrison, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Monbrison can be enjoyed on the young side with decanting. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 1-2 hours, 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.

Chateau Monbrison is usually better with at least 6-8 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Monbrison offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 10-18 years of age after the vintage.

Serving Chateau Monbrison, with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips

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

Chateau Monbrison is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Monbrison is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta as well as cheese.
