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.
A very ripe, sweet and forward Gevrey, quite seductive on the nose with an edge of red forest fruits. On the palate the wine displays a balanced, fresh and fragrant style, seamed with fresh raspberry, black cherry and some spice. The oak is integrated yet grips the finish. A complex, earthy and seductive Gevrey from a great producer.
Enjoy with the finest beef, lamb or game you can afford.
Fermented in 100% new oak and aged for 18 months
