Domaine Christian Sérafin
This domaine produces some of the finest, traditional wines of the Gevrey Appellation. Frédérique Goulley, the niece of Christian Sérafin, who has been
working alongside her uncle for over ten years now, is now very much the winemaking driving force at the domaine, while Christian slows down.
Although the baton has been handed over, the wine making philosophy hasn’t changed. These wines are hand crafted, with old vines and low yields central to the
winemaking here. A cool ten day maceration helps create a stunning richness and concentration with the diligent use of new oak and the non-filtration of the wines being key to the Sérafin style.
They continue to destem around 70% of the bunches. The grapes are fermented at
a relatively high temperature and enjoy up to 100% new oak ageing.
Complex and elegant although still quite tight initially. Good aeration in the glass brings out a delicious hedgerow fruit. A wine with a lovely personality that is very Gevrey in style.
Delicious with slow roasted shoulder of lamb with braised vegetables.
