Produced from 60 year old vines, this 1er Cru is situated immediately next to the famous Clos Saint Jacques vineyard. The family has just increased their holding of this great 1er Cru after realizing that Christian Sérafin’s garden was within the appellation boundaries! Dig up the lawn and plant the vines!

Domaine 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.
Enjoy with the finest beef, lamb or game you can afford.
