When to Drink Chateau Mont Redon, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Mont Redon can be enjoyed on the young side if decanted for 1-2 hours. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Chateau Mont Redon is usually better with 3-6 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. In the best vintages the wine should be consumed within 4-15 years after the vintage.
