When to Drink Chateau Moulin Haut Laroque, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Moulin Haut Laroque is better with at least 2-3 years of aging in good vintages. Young vintages can be decanted for up to 1 hour, helping the wine soften to help develop the aromatic character.

Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Moulin Haut Laroque offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 3-12 years of age after the vintage.
