When to Drink Chateau Beau-Site, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time
Chateau Beau-Site can be enjoyed on the young side with 1 hour or so of air. However, the wine is usually better at 3-6 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character.
The wine will be at its best between 5-12 years of age after the vintage. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of about one hour, give or take. This will allow the wine to soften in texture and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.
Serving Chateau Beau-Site with the Best Wine, Food, Pairing Tips
Chateau Beau-Site is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.
Chateau Beau-Site is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, stewed, and grilled dishes. Chateau Beau-Site is also good when served with Asian dishes, hearty seafood, or fish like tuna, mushrooms, pasta, and a myriad of different cheeses.
