When to drink Château Gigognan? Maturity, decanting time
Château Gigognan can be enjoyed by young people. Young vintages can be blown and poured, or decanted for about 1 hour. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages require very little decanting, just enough to remove sediment.
Château Gigognan is generally best after 2 to 4 years of bottle ageing. Of course, this can vary slightly depending on the vintage. In the best vintages, the wine should be consumed within 3 to 10 years depending on the vintage.
Food and wine pairing
Château Gigognan is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool temperature, almost that of the cellar, gives the wine more freshness and elevation.
Château Gigognan is ideal to accompany all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, stewed dishes, sausages, barbecue and cassoulet. It is also perfect for Asian dishes, hearty fish dishes such as tuna, pasta with mushrooms, eggplant, cheese and tomatoes.
The Château's white wine is ideal to accompany a myriad of seafood dishes, shellfish, crabs, lobster, sushi, sashimi, chicken, pork and veal, as well as Asian cuisine.
