When to Drink Domaine Andre Mathieu, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Domaine Andre Mathieu can be enjoyed on the young side. Young vintages can be popped and poured, or decanted for an hour so. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Domaine Andre Mathieu is usually better with 2-5 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. In the best vintages, the wine should be consumed within 8-12 years after the vintage.
