A muscular wine, with an impressive structure, mulberry, ripe cassis fruits and great energy and a hint of feminity creeping into the winemaking style, which is most attractive.

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.
This wine is muscular, dominated by concentrated black cassis fruits with a stylish tannin structure. The oak element is finely grained and provides an impressive polish.
Enjoy with the finest beef, lamb or game you can afford.
11 small parcels totaling 1.33ha, with vines averaging 37 years old. Fermented in 100% new oak and aged for 18 months
