TIPS TO DRINK THE WINES OF PROVENCE AT THEIR BEST:
- Red Wines: the drink temperature of young red wines (less than 4 years old) is 14°C to 16°C.
- It is recommended to pour the wine in a decanter one hour before drinking it.
- Red wines that are older than 4 years have to be served between 16°C and 18°C. Only very tannic wines, like for instance those from the BANDOL registered origin, have to be poured into a decanter about 2 hours before drinking.
- White Wines: all white wines should ideally be served at a temperature between 6°C and 8°C. It is seldom necessary to decant them.
- Rosé Wines: rosé wines should ideally be served at a temperature between 8°C and 10°C. It is seldom necessary to decant them.
- Last but not least, if there is no wine fridge (a fridge dedicated to keep wine bottles at the right temperature), bottles should be stocked horizontally, away from the light, in an odour-free place with a stable temperature between 18°C and 23°C and a humidity level of about 60%.
