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.

Tasting Notes

Crimson/purple colour- very rich forward nose - tight knit and brooding. It has an iron grip of tannins and structure with a streak of sweetness to balance.

Food Matches

Try with beef fillet with porcini and girolle mushrooms.

Press Comments

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Good bright medium red. Complex soil-driven perfume of spicy red berries, flowers, minerals and earth. A broad, supple, slightly exotic fruit bomb in the mouth, with noteworthy intensity to its red cherry and raspberry flavors. This deceptively accessible wine finishes with a firm tannic spine.
