Chateau Serilhan 2010

$70.00 per bottle

Stock: Available

Robert Parker ~ 90-92 Points

"I believe this is the first Serilhan vintage to boast Hubert de Bouard as the winemaking consultant. The strongest effort I have tasted from this 60-acre estate, it is composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and hit 14% natural alcohol. A soft, round, generous, opaque plum-colored wine, it offers abundant notes of black cherries and black currants intermixed with hints of herbs and earth."

Aromas of plums and minerals with hints of flowers follow through to a full body with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Spicy. Delicious.

This firmly tannic wine, characteristic of Saint-Estèphe, is very dry. Underneath the dryness, there is a delicious, opulent juiciness that brings out black currant and plum flavors. It’s obviously a wine for the long haul
