Chateau Carignan is better with at least 1 years of aging in good vintages. Young vintages can be decanted for less than 1 hour, helping the wine soften to help develop the aromatic character.
Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Carignan offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 1-5 years of age after the vintage.
Chateau Carignan is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.
Tasting Notes: wine is round and forward, opens into dark chocolate covered black cherries and a kiss of herbs on the finish.
Chateau Carignan is best when paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau Carignan is also good when matched with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
“…excellent value Bordeaux." - James Suckling
