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.

Tasting Notes

Produced from 44 year old vines which are located adjacent to the Grand Cru of Bonne Marres. Fermented in 100% new oak and aged for 18 months. A similar bouquet to the Morey-Saint-Denis, with a degree more ‘exotica’ on the first sniff – this is, again, deeply opulent and seriously stacked in terms of power, richness and mouthfeel. Big, ripe and laden with boiled black fruits encased in a structure that has a feel of iron and wet soil, the denseness of the wine feels like it is still shaking the earth from its roots. It is firm and tight but will delight in a few years’ time.

Food Matches

Goes well with raspberry marinated rack of lamb.
