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.
Wow - this is a superstar wine! Richly succulent, almost hedonistic, offering sumptuous red fruits, with a broad stroke of balancing freshness. Complex, mouth-filling and full bodied, with enormous structure and grip. The minerality is the perfect savoury foil to the sweetness of the ripe jammy fruit. A complete wine.
Great with rare roast beef with seasonal vegetables and yorkshire pudding!
Produced from grapes grown on the mid-slope of Charmes, handpicked, sorted and fermented in 100% new oak and aged for 18 months.
