When to Drink Chateau Perenne, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time
Chateau Perenne is better with at least 1-2 years of aging in good vintages. Young vintages can be decanted for up to 1 hour, helping the wine soften to help develop the aromatic character.
Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau offers its Perenne best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 3-8 years of age after the vintage.
Serving Chateau Perenne with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips
Chateau Perenne is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.
Chateau Perenne is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau Perenne is also good when matched with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
