Checking in as 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that's from a small vineyard on the upper plateau, the 2019 Château La Serre reveals a deep purple hue to go with an already complex nose of ripe red and blue fruits, leafy herbs, chalky minerality, and spicy oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, balanced, and satisfying, it's well worth seeking out and will benefit from just a handful of years in the cellar and shine over the following 10-15 years or so. It's a complex, undeniably delicious Saint-Emilion.

Barrel Sample. This is a fine, structured wine, showing class as well as fruitiness. Its juicy berry flavors are a fine harbinger of the wine's ripe, full future. There is good aging potential here.

Solid, featuring a good, direct core of dark currant and plum fruit that has the rich, lightly roasted edge of the vintage, with sleek anise, apple wood and savory notes streaking through the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2023 through 2035. 1,825 cases made, 300 cases imported.

Exhibiting aromas of cherries, plums, sweet berries and vanilla pod, the 2019 La Serre is medium to full-bodied, ample and seamless, with a generous core of succulent fruit and supple, melting tannins. This is a charming wine from a small, four-hectare vineyard located on Saint-Émilion's limestone plateau (near Château Trotteveille) that has recently undergone extensive replanting.

The 2019 La Serre is a powerful, dense Saint-Émilion. A burst of black cherry, plum, licorice, spice and tobacco hits the palate. There is plenty of fruit intensity, although some angularity remains in the contours. La Serra is best enjoyed over the next decade or so for its boisterous, pleasantly hearty personality.

Varietal: Red Bordeaux

There are few regions in the world with stricter regulations in regards to wine production and grape varietals than those found in Bordeaux, France. Here, in the home of the world's finest wines, the type and quality of grapes used is of utmost importance, and the legendary wineries which work on the banks of the Gironde river have mastered the careful art of juice blending to find the perfect balance for their produce. Whilst there are six 'official' Bordeaux grapes, the two key varietals for almost every fine Bordeaux wine are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and with good reason. Whilst Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are renowned for their acidity and astringency, strong fruit and spice flavors and full body, Merlot grapes are notably rounded, soft, fleshy and lighter on tannin. The combination of these two varietals, along with a small percentage of (commonly) Petit Verdot or Cabernet Franc, is the perfect balancing act – the two grape varietals cancel out each others weaker points, and accentuate all that is good about the other.

Region: Bordeaux

Of all the wine regions in France, the mostly highly esteemed and famous is surely Bordeaux. Most commonly associated with their superb examples of blended red wines, usually made with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot varietals, Bordeaux consistently demonstrates that their mix of traditional and modern wine-making styles is the recipe for fame and success. The region benefits greatly from its humid climate, and the fact that its clay and gravel based soils are perfect for growing the fine grape varietals which flourish there. The region is split into quite distinct sub-regions, with the finest generally believed to be the Left Bank and the Médoc region, where many of the most well known chateaux are based and produce their wonderful red and white wines.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.

Appellation: Saint Emilion

Saint Emilion is a very special sub-region found in France's Bordeaux, and is situated on the highly esteemed and world renowned right bank of the Gironde river. Here, the mineral rich gravel and clay based soils provide plenty of nutrition and character to the grape varietals which are grown, and the warm and sunny climate helps them ripen each year to their fullest. The majority of the chateaus in Saint Emilion produce blended red wines, using a carefully balanced blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes. The result is something truly wonderful – finely crafted red wines which express all of the finest points of each varietal, and holding plenty of fascinating and complex character, flavors and aromas which have helped make this sub-region one of the best in the world.
