Producer

Chateau La Serre is located just outside the village of St. Emilion. It is situated exactly across the street from Chateau La Couspaude. Chateau La Serre takes its name from its south facing position, as La Serre can be translated to, greenhouse, which the estate gets due to its great exposure. The chateau was constructed towards the end of the 17th century. Chateau La Serre was purchased in the 1950′s by the d’Arfeuille family, who continue to own the estate today.

The terroir of Chateau La Serre is chalk, clay and sand. The Bordeaux vineyard of Chateau La Serre consists of vines planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The average vine age in their St. Emilion vineyard is 35 years of age. The vineyard is planted to a vine density of 6,000 vines per hectare. Chateau La Serre is vinified in traditional concrete vats. This Right Bank wine is aged 16 months in 50% new French oak barrels. On average, 2,000 cases of Chateau La Serre are produced each year. There is a second wine, Les Menuts de La Serre.

Grape varieties

Sauvignon Blanc

Region

Narbonne is in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. This region is undergoing a revolution in quality. Poor quality, high-yielding grape varieties have been replaced with classic varieties, such as Merlot. Flying Kiwis and Australians spend their winter coming to the Northern Hemisphere's summer to make wine.

Style

Zingy, fresh, fruity Sauvignon Blanc style wines. High on acidity, big on flavour.
Can be either full of gooseberries, green apples, grassy aromas or more subtle, tropical passion fruit flavours.
The New Zealand style tends to be more intense than the mineral, stony style you’ll find in Sancerre & Pouilly Fume – the home of the Sauvignon Blanc grape in Loire, France. Look out for Chilean Sav Blancs for good value for money.
