When to Drink Chateau Citran, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Saint Paul can be decanted for an average of 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.

Chateau St. Paul is usually better with at least 2-4 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Citran offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 4-9 years of age after the vintage.

Serving and Decanting Chateau Saint Paul with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips

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

Chateau Saint Paul is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta as well as cheese.
