Overview
Another of Luc Guénard’s reserve wines produced in small quantities, this year 3,000 bottles were made. Serine is an old name for the Syrah grape and is especially used in the northern Rhone appellation of “Côte Rôtie” and the wine is a play on that association. Old vines oriented towards the north east and a cold wind that blows down from Mount Ventoux around 5:00 am every morning, account for the incredible freshness in this wine. The flavours of this wine combine autumn fruits, wild hedgerow scents, beautifully integrated oak and an abiding acidity make this a perfectly pitched wine between power and elegance. It will age well for at least another ten years and is great served with red meats cooked on the open fire or barbeque.
