En Primeur: 6 x Château Séraphine, Pomerol, France, 2020
The word ‘gravitas’ is perfect for contextualising the presence some wines possess, and it is none more apt than for Château Séraphine, Pomerol, 2020.
Instantly, the colour takes a grip on your attention with a pull akin to that of Medusa, deep, impenetrable purple.The aroma is rich and redolent, with black plum, black olive tapenade and graphite which has me at its mercy.
The palate is opulent, profound, more words oft used loosely but fit this wine like a tailored suit.There’s unashamed use of new oak here, maybe even 100%, but it is almost seamlessly intertwined with the wine. Only a toasty flutter on the finish betraying it.
Close to perfection with the potential to realise it in time. 99+
