Very deep black dark red core with a dark red hue. Slightly reticent at first, aromas of blackcurrant, a hint of liquorice and ripe mulberry gradually evolve from the glass and build in intensity. Ensuing are subtle scorched earth, vanillin cedar and spice. Medium bodied the palate is quite forward approachable revealing rich ripe blackcurrant and subtle liquorice fruit over mulberry, vanillin cedar, light earth and spice. Good acid structure with cleverly concealed tannins. Excellent length with a savoury, medium to long, red to dark fruit laced finish.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
The 2016 Sérilhan has a wonderful, quite high-toned and generous bouquet with ample blackberry and raspberry scents laced with violet and hints of iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip in the mouth, quite symmetrical and focused with impressive precision on the finish. This feels dialed back in terms of power to the benefit of this elegant Saint-Estèphe. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London. Drink 2019-2034.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Layered and very intense with dark-fruit and spice character. Hints of chocolate. Full-bodied, juicy and fruity. Long finish. Best ever from here?
