Chateau Serilhan, Saint Estephe, 2015

Price: HKD 278

75cl

The 2015 Château Sérilhan has a crisp blackberry, briary, damp earth-tinged bouquet that shows a little more cohesion than other Saint Estèphe 2015s. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy, red berry entry, well-balanced if not showing the depth on the finish that is displayed elsewhere. Still, this is a well-crafted wine that should give 15-20 years of pleasure.

James Suckling 90 pts
Lots of blackberry notes but also earth and menthol on the nose. Well structured but still has a lightness of touch thanks to the fresh acidity. Clean, medium to long finish. Drink or hold.
