When to Drink Chateau Lassegue, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Lassegue needs some time before it can be enjoyed. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 1 hour 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 Lassegue is usually better with at least 4-6 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Lassegue offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 4-15 years of age after the vintage.

Serving Chateau Lassegue with Wine and Food Pairings

Chateau Lassegue is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

Chateau Lassegue is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes. Chateau Lassegue is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta.
