Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Perched on the limestone heights of Saint-Emilion, within 200 metres of the town’s moat and ancient walls, this little-known jewel of a property produces a wine which defines Saint-Emilion at its best. There are less than 16 acres in production, the vines averaging about 35 years of age. In 2015 the blend again reflects how the vineyard is planted. 80% Merlot with 20% Cabernet Franc and the wine is now ageing in 40% new oak barrels. This 2015 La Serre is rich, brilliant purple in colour, with pure, fine fruitiness on the nose. Palate is broadly structured, with abundant, dense fruitiness, fine harmony, creamy texture, fresh, gentle tannins, and impressive, complex length (for drinking 2020-2032+).
Ratings
Wine Advocate: The 2015 La Serre, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, has buoyant red berry fruit on the nose - lively and nonchalant. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, well-judged acidity, very harmonious with impressive fruit concentration towards the velvety finish. I often feel that La Serre is overlooked at en primeur, but this is a valuable contribution to the JP Moueix stable this year. 90 - 92 Points
Awards
Wine Spectator: Features a very ripe, friendly core of raspberry and blackberry fruit, though the frame of singed alder is a bit taut. If that fades into the fruit, this will be a pleasant charmer. 88 - 91 Points
Other Notes
Château La Serre is located in the heart of Saint-Emilion, registered with its vineyard landscapes, World Heritage of UNESCO since 1999. The city and its vineyards are living proof of this civilization of wine that was built century century at the option of multiple influences, marking their footprints landscapes, homes and monuments.
