When to Drink Chateau Edmus, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Edmus is better with at least 2-4 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Chateau Edmus is best enjoyed in the first 4-12 years of life.

Young vintages can be decanted for up to 1 hour or so. 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 Edmus with Wine, and Food Pairing Tips

Chateau Edmus is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. Chateau Edmus is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes.

Chateau Edmus is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta as well as cheese.
