When to Drink Clos Junet Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time
Clos Junet is better with at least 2-3 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Clos Junet is best enjoyed in the first 8-12 years of life.
Young vintages can be decanted for about 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 and Decanting Clos Junet with Wine and Food Pairings
Clos Junet is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.
Clos Junet is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Clos Junet is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, salmon, mushrooms and pasta.
