Silky, soft and fresh, with a gorgeous polish to the dark red fruits which are made even more interesting by all of its floral accents. There is sweetness to the fruit, soft, silky tannins and freshness in the finish. I like the spicy, cocoa note that comes through on the backend. Drink from 2023-2038. 91-93

Medium/full-bodied, fresh, soft and silky, the wine requires just a little effort to entice all of its black cherries, plums, chocolate, espresso and licorice to come to the front of the perfume. Vibrant, with ample, sweet, ripe, lush fruits with a dose of salt that adds to the wines character. Polished lively and long, with sweetness and purity to the fruits that linger, this is the best vintage of La Serre I have ever tasted. Drink from 2024-2045.

Better from the bottle than from the barrel, the wine is packed with flowers, cherries, tobacco leaf, licorice and cocoa. On the palate, the lushly textured, plush, polished wine offers a layered mouthful of chocolate covered plums, licorice and smoke that really stays with you. This is the best vintage of La Serre I have ever tasted. You can enjoy it in its fruit-filled youth, or age it for 15 or more years. Drink from 2024-2037.

Fresh, fruity and fun to taste, the wine has more richness than experienced in previous vintages. Now, you find layers of sweet plum, cherry, licorice, spice and earthy nuances. Give this just a few years in the cellar and enjoy it over the following 2 decades.

Fruity in a classic sense, the wine is sharp, ripe, medium bodied and mineral driven. Give it a few years to come together and it should be a nicely enhanced wine.

Medium-bodied, soft, earthy and fresh, the fruits are ripe with freshness and just hint of licorice and that desired mineral essence that adds a saltiness to the fruit. This will be better with a few years of age. .

From a perfectly stored magnum, sweet pipe tobacco, cherries, earth and forest scents met with a medium bodied, soft textured wine that ended with spicy, red cherries. What a nice surprise.
