When to Drink Chateau Corbin Michotte, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Corbin Michotte is better with 3-4 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Chateau Corbin Michotte is best enjoyed in the first 5-10 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 Corbin Michotte with Wine and Food Pairings

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

Chateau Corbin Michotte is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
