You can drink every wine during the appetizing, chilled or not. Wine as an aperitif can then be drunk with the rest of the meal or just with the starter.
It is often better not to mix
too many wines.
of Clairet and white
Chilled: always keep a few bottles in the refrigerator ! Open the bottle
just before drinking it.
of red and white wines
Red wines are best drunk at room temperature. Always open the bottle
a little in advance. For a young wine, open the bottle several hours
before to release a little smoothness of the tannins.
Don't bother with the rules some experts require. Enjoy yourself !
Drink the wines you like with the food you like. Your pleasure will
always be our best satisfaction.

the bottom of the bottle
There may be a deposit in wine bottles. This is a natural phenomenon
with the ageing of wine, and which we do not counter with any forced
stabilising. You can filter the wine or decant it in a carafe to recover
a very little glass of wine... Do not hesitate to leave the dregs. We
call that the angels portion !
Wherever you store your wine, make sure that the bottles lie on their
side and away from light. To limit changes of temperature, store all
the bottles together.
