2020 Château La Serre  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 94

Full-bodied, silky, fresh and packed with chocolate, black and red plums, licorice, oak and crushed rocks, there is serious vibrancy and depth of flavor here. 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. 93-95 Pts

2018 Château La Serre  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

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. 91 Points
