When to Drink Chateau Tronquoy, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Tronquoy can be enjoyed on the young side. The wine is usually better at 3-6 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. In the best vintages, the wine should be consumed within 12-18 years after the vintage.

Tronquoy is usually best enjoyed in the first 10-15-20 years after the vintage. Young vintages can be decanted for 1-2 hours. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

One other tip for you. Since 2008, Tronquoy has really upped their game, making better wine each year. For value wine hunters that love Cabernet Sauvignon dominated, Left Bank wines, this is a wine to watch!

Serving Tronquoy with the Best Wine, Food, Pairing Tips
