Apologies if this is the incorrect place for this topic but I wanted to ask a quick general question and a specific one please.
Does anyone have any general guides for decanting times?
How long would you decant a bottle of…
- Exhibition Pomerol 2011
- Exhibition Morgon 2013
- Falua Reserva Alicante Bouschet Tejo 2011
I decanted a bottle of Chateau Beaumont on Saturday for about 90 mins and it was absolutely exceptional - It was the girlfriend’s first try of a claret (she’s always a white drinker) and she loved it…phew! However i decanted a bottle of the Society’s Claret (Current crop) and allowed an hour and again, it was fabulous and beautifully blackcurranty, but the next night it was radically changed. I’ve been advised from 30 mins up to 4 hours so is it better to err on the side of caution and open everything early?
Many thanks in advance!
