Harvested from 2 parcels, a 0.33ha parcel of 45yo vines named Pressonnier, which for 30 years, between 1956 and 1986, had the right to be sold as Gevrey-Chambertin.. There is also a proportion of grapes added from young vines of the 1er Cru Cazetieres, which gives a greater complexity to the wine. In 2021 they made just 4 barrels – down from their normal 17-18.
This is an En Primeur wine and special conditions apply.

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.
Vinified in 50% new oak, this fragrant and attractive Pinot shows a lovely smoky, jammy and ripe fruit, offering cherry, raspberry and some spice, with softish tannins and a lovely freshness and minerality. Overall the wine shows weight and a distinct savoury quality that leads to a long finish. Very classy – a mini Gevrey!
A delicious accompaniement to turkey and chicken dishes.
Fermented in 50% new oak and aged for 18 months
