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.
This 2008 premier Cur shows both elegance and richness with the beguiling complexity that holds your attention. Mulled red fruits integrated with sweet oak, a sprinkling of spice and the power and viscosity that Serafin seems to find in his vineyards. This wine develops well in the glass and makes any occasion pleasurable.
Enjoy with the finest beef, lamb or game you can afford.
