When to Drink Chateau Jean Voisin, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Jean Voisin is better with at least 3-4 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Chateau Jean Voisin is best enjoyed in the first 3-12 years of life.

Young vintages can be decanted for about 1 hour to 90 minutes. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Serving Chateau Jean Voisin with Wine and Food Pairings

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

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