L’Innocence de Séraphine, Pomerol, France, 2018
L’Innocence de Séraphine 2018 is deep in colour, with savoury marmite aromas complemented by red cherry fruits. More red fruits emerge on the palate, making it supple and medium bodied. This elegant wine with a sour cranberry twist was matured in 300-litre French oak barrels for 16 months.
Château de Séraphine in Pomerol is Martin Krajewski’s most recent project in Bordeaux and is named after his grandmother. The estate consists of only 2.2 hectares in two parcels, one hectare in Plince and 1.2 hectares in Mazeyres. Having purchased the plots in 2017, a digger was used to dig deep soil pits and evaluate the soil profile in each.
Martin was ecstatic to discover blue clay two metres deep, the type of clay that is so special to Pomerol. Each vine is tended by hand, with ploughing and tilling of the soils done using a horse rather than tractors, which tend to compact the soil.
