When to Drink Chateau Le Boscq, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Le Boscq can be enjoyed early. However, the wine is often better with at least a few years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage.

Chateau Le Boscq is usually best enjoyed in the first 8-15 years of life. Young vintages can be decanted for 1 hour or so. 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 Le Boscq and wine, food pairing tips

Chateau Le Boscq is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

Chateau Le Boscq is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb and roast chicken. Depending on the vintage, Le Boscq is at its best with 5 to 8 years of bottle age, but of course, that varies, with the character of the vintage.
