When to Drink Chateau de Francs, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau de Francs 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 de Francs offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 2-8 years of age after the vintage.
