This wine is made from 100% Merlot and is being aged in French oak barrels, 40% new, for 12-14 months, with a portion fermented and aging in a 1,000-liter clay amphora. The alcohol came in at 14%. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2020 Séraphine sashays out of the glass with gorgeous notes of candied violets, dark chocolate-covered cherries and raspberry preserves over a core of juicy black plums and fertile loam, plus a waft of truffles. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with earth-laced muscular black fruits, supported by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and mineral tinged. 3,200 bottles are due to be made. ~93-95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Inky purple in colour, clear concentration. Plenty of Pomerol polish and seduction in its quality of tannins and creamy texture of black cherry and damson fruits. A spiced black chocolate finish, highlights exactly why Merlot on the soils of Pomerol takes on an expression that is hard to repeat elsewhere. Juicy finish also, good quality overall. 40% new oak, with a small section in clay amphora. Just 3,200 bottles. A 2.2ha vineyard split across two plots of vines, one in the Plince sector and the other in Mazèyres. Drinking Window 2026 - 2038 ~94 Decanter
