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.
Morey St Denis has a reputation for making rich and firm wines; this differs from the norm as on the nose possess a distinct sweetness, combining creamy red fruits, fresh raspberry, black cherry and cranberry, whilst the palate takes these and adds spice, mulled cherry and a lovely, sweet edge. The tannins are robust and spicy, yet overall, this is an elegant Pinot, showing great complexity and refinement.
A good Burgundy is ideal with duck and other game birds, casseroles or, of course, stews like beef bourguignon.
Fermented in 100% new oak and aged for 18 months
