When to Drink Clos Badon Thunevin, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Clos Badon Thunevin is usually better with 2-4 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage. Clos Badon Thunevin is usually best enjoyed in the first 4-12 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.

Serving Clos Badon Thunevin with Wine and Food Pairings

Clos Badon Thunevin is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

Clos Badon Thunevin is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes. Clos Badon is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta, and a diverse array of hard and soft cheese.
