Château La Serre 2018 (94 DE)
“One of the best in this tasting. Silky and rich, with aromatic black fruits and a complex layering of cut herbs, liquorice and sweet spices. Restrained elegance without putting a foot wrong in terms of its silky soft tannic hold and appealing saline finish. Brilliant. 50% new oak.”
Château La Serre
Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe
Château La Serre has an exceptional position in the very heart of Saint-Emilion, six hundred feet from the town ramparts of this magical UNESCO protected area, on outstanding limestone soils with a due south exposure. The history of the property dates to the 15th century, with the residence constructed at the end of the 17th century by a prominent local family. Arnaud d'Arfeuille's grandfather purchased the property in 1956, and his father Luc in particular worked on renovating the vineyards and cellars to produce wine equal to its terroir.
