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.
Produced from 7 parcels totaling 1ha, situated adjacent to Grand Cru and 1er Cru vineyards. The vines average 71 years old, the oldest of which are 90 years old. Vinified and aged for 18 months in 100% new oak this wine possesses a stunning viscosity.Sturdy and structured, with cassis and black olive characters on full show, there is also a dash of toast layered into the underbelly. The tannin structure and fresh acidity provide great balance and the finish is very fruit dominant.
