Give this stunner 6-8 years in the cellar and it will really begin to shine.

When to Drink Chateau Feytit Clinet, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Feytit Clinet needs at least 8-12 years of aging in good vintages until it is ready to be enjoyed. Young vintages can be decanted for 2 hours or more.

This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Feytit Clinet offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 10-30 years of age after the vintage.
