Producer: Chateau La Serre
Chateau La Serre is located just outside the village of Saint Emilion. It is situated exactly across the street from Chateau La Couspaude. Chateau La Serre takes its name from its south facing position, as La Serre can be translated to, greenhouse, which the estates gets due to its great exposure. The chateau was constructed towards the end of the 17th century.
A limpid ruby colour, the La Serre ’10 has a rounded, sensual nose with black cherries, redcurrant and plum. Always one of the most generous bouquets at this early stage, it offers commendable purity and lift. The palate is very feminine and pure with black cherries, cassis and dark plum, harmonious and silky towards the finish. One of my favourite wines with the J-P Moueix portfolio, this comes highly recommended
Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
Immediate gratification, filled with plump, fat, fleshy black cherry and black currant fruit and loamy soil notes as well as hints of balsam wood and underbrush should check out this medium to full-bodied, seductive wine, which has more power and density than it normally possesses. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
Gilbert & Gaillard
Intense crimson. Profound nose suggestive of black cherry with plum flesh. Warm entry, a concentrated, tightly-wound style that is still firm on the finish. Quite closed at the moment
