When to Drink Chateau Corbin Michotte, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time
Chateau Corbin Michotte is better with 3-4 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Chateau Corbin Michotte is best enjoyed in the first 5-10 years of life.
Young vintages can be decanted for up to 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.
