The 2016 Serilhan is a special drinking pleasure. It has a wonderful and excellent bouquet of blackberry, cigar box and smoky aromas that unfold gently in the glass. The palate is medium bodied with juicy black and red fruits, very fine tannins, a touch of new oak and with more than enough fruit. The finish is long and sensual. Extremely tempting, this is a seduction from Saint Estèphe! Drink 2021-2040.

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!
Decanter: 92
Plump, plush, and extremely seductive aromatics, this has the St-Estèphe vigour of the year. There are some soft cocoa-dusted bitter chocolate shavings and a silky, balanced character. It should be good value, and a great example of the appellation in this vintage. Lovely. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040.
James Suckling: 93
Layered and very intense with dark-fruit and spice character. Hints of chocolate. Full-bodied, juicy and fruity. Long finish. Best ever from here?
