2018 Ch La Serre, Grand Cru Classé, St Emilion

Vineyard Information

This 7 hectare vineyard is situated along the edge of Saint-Emilion's famous limestone terrace, just a few dozen meters from the center of this medieval town. The vineyard is planted on a south-facing limestone plateau (hence its name, 'the greenhouse') covered with a thin layer of clay and averages 35 years of age.

M. Luc d'Arfeuille, the estate's passionate owner, favors a traditional approach in both the vineyard and the winery and his methods ensure that this exceptional terroir is perfectly expressed in his wines. The soil is tilled manually to avoid the use of herbicides, and vineyard work is kept to the minimum to allow the vineyard's natural character to shine through. Traditional interventions such as pruning and disbudding suffice to control yields.

The estate has recently introduced some modern elements, such as pre-fermentary cold maceration and, more recently, optical sorting, to allow only the purest expression of this privileged terroir.

M. d'Arfeuille and his team seek balance in all aspects of winemaking, pursuing the legendary elegance of the wines that have been produced on this historic land for centuries.

The wines of Château La Serre are deep and generous with a streak of minerality.
