Chateau La Serre Saint Emilion 2010
|Brand||Chateau La Serre|
James SucklingWhat fruit. You see the ripe Cabernet Franc. Very perfumed, with red oranges and blackberries. Full, with super well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Tasted twice. Best ever? 93-94
Wine SpectatorThis has a nice sappy edge, offering kirsch and boysenberry preserves flavors that course along, with lots of mouthcoating fruitcake and melted licorice on the finish. There's a tarry thread too, for added texture and length. Solid. Best from 2015 through 2025.
Wine AdvocateReaders looking for a wine for immediate gratification, filled with plump, fat, fleshy black cherry and black currant fruit and loamy soil notes as well as hints of balsam wood and underbrush should check out this medium to full-bodied, seductive wine, which has more power and density than it normally possesses. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a richly structured and deliciously juicy wine. The tannins are fully integrated into the fruit. The downside of the wine is a touch of greenness, particularly in the acidity.
