(made from a selection of Cuilleron's oldest vines from 18 different plots, with 50% new oak): Dark purple. Penetrating aromas of blackberry, licorice, smoky minerals and candied violet. Densely packed and energetic on the palate, showing a suave floral quality to its flavors of ripe dark berries, licorice and spicecake. This smooth, appealingly sweet wine finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and excellent mineral-driven persistence. Drink: 2017-2030 (Feb15)

Le Serines has an intense complex nose of dark fruit enhanced by spice and liquorice. A clean dark entry evolves into something rich, dense and rounded on the palate. Le Serines posseses a long, mineral finish helped along by silky, fine-grained tannins. Le Serines is made from some of Yves Cuilleron's oldest vineyarsds in St Joseph and sees 50% new oak. This is a wine that needs a little rest on release and will be at it's best between 5-10 years after release.
