About Domaine Sérafin

Christian Sérafin is a widely respected producer held in high regard by Robert M. Parker Jr., the second generation of his family estate, Domaine Serafin, he produces formidable Burgundies that have won over numerous critics. Robert Parker, clearly an ardent fan, makes no effort to hide his admiration towards Sérafin:

“In a village of far too many underachievers, Christian Serafin stands out as one of the sure-handed winemakers. His wines have been remarkably consistent”

Sérafin’s estate includes vineyard holdings in Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis, and Chambolle-Musigny. His prized Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru plot occupies a mere 0.31 hectares with vines planted in 1946. Today, the estate is managed by Christian’s daughter Karine and niece Frédérique Goulley.

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
