When to Drink Chateau Talbot, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Talbot can be enjoyed on the young side with several hours of decanting. However, the wine is usually better at 7-10 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character.

In the best years, the wine will best between 12 and 20 to 25 years of age after the vintage. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 2 hours. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume.

Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Older vintages, from the 1950s, 1960's and 1980's seem to age better than the current years. But time will tell.

Serving Chateau Talbot with the Best Wine, Food, Pairing Tips
