Story

The vintage
After a cold and damp winter, a very wet spring and significant rainfall in June, the regions’ groundwater reserves were restored. Unfortunately, this also allowed for the proliferation of some grapevine diseases in certain areas. The very hot summer that followed was punctuated by short rains. This and the favorable temperatures at harvest time allowed us to obtain the best of this vintage in terms of quality. Under this atypical climatic context, it was the Syrah grape variety which flourished the most in our vineyards that year.
Location
Located in the Languedoc, the historic Chateau de Sérame has origins dating back to the Gallo-Roman period. The Domaine is nestled in a preserved natural environment, bordered by the Aude river and the Canal du Midi, and at the junction of two appellations: Corbières and Minervois. Its remarkable range of terroirs allows for the elaboration of unique, full, and complex wines.singuliers

Tasting notes
Garnet in color, the first nose is of roasting vanilla. The palate is enhanced by spicy hints of clove and rich in tannins of great finesse. Despite the latter, the finish remains round and delicate.
