When to Drink Chateau La Clemence, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau La Clemence can be enjoyed on the young side with an hour or so decanting. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

However, I find the wine is usually better with 3-7 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. In the best years, Chateau La Clemence will best between 5 and 14 years of age after the vintage.

Serving Chateau La Clemence with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips

Chateau La Clemence is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. Chateau La Clemence is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes.

Chateau La Clemence is also good with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.

Aside from his 3 estates in Bordeaux, Christopher Dauriac also consults the Marianne Wine Estate, located in the Stellenbosch appellation in South Africa.
