The 2016 Serilhan is a treat. It has a gorgeous, beautifully defined bouquet with blackberry, cigar box and smoky aromas that gently unfold in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent black and red fruit, very fine tannin, a veneer of quality new oak but with more than sufficient fruit underneath and a long sensual finish. Utterly seductive, this is a temptress from Saint Estèphe!
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2040
The 2016 Sérilhan comes across light and lacking in complexity. Some of the awkward notes the wine showed from barrel have sorted themselves out, but the wine lacks depth and, sadly, offers very little of interest.
