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 2022 yields were up to 'normal ' levels of 16 barrels made of this sensuous red.

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 Noir shows a lovely cherry, raspberry and spicey fruit with tremendous purity and poise. The wine has softish tannins and a lovely freshness and minerality. There is 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.
100% destemmed after hand picking. Fermented in 50% new oak and 50% oak of 1 year old. Aged for 11 months in barrel.
