Chateau la Serre Grand Cru Classe


2007 : Pure minty, blackcurrant fruit with a strictness on the attack that opens out across the palate. Sweet oak combines well with the fruit, teasing out ripe notes of creamy blackberry and dark pastille fruits. Admirable vigour and drive here and the finish is compact yet not expansive at this stage. Should drink well in its youth but with good concentration, a few years in bottle will do no harm at all. Drink from 2010.

2013 : Aromatic and fresh on the nose with notes of cherry, prune and blackberry. A smooth palate with a very traditional tannic structure. Elegant and perfumed with a refined finish.
