When to Drink Chateau La Fleur de Gay, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau La Fleur de Gay can be decanted for an average of 1 - 2 hours, when young. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Chateau La Fleur de Gay is usually better with at least 7-9 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau La Fleur de Gay offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 9-22 years of age after the vintage.

Serving Chateau La Fleur de Gay with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips
