Reviews for 2009 La Serre Bordeaux Blend

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
Enticing aromas of dark berries with sandalwood. Full body with round and velvety tannins and a ripe fruit aftertaste. Juicy and delicious. Best La Serre in years. Best in 2017.

Pretty notes of rose and vanilla accent ripe pure flavors of black cherry raspberry and currant in this polished red. Bright acidity carries the smooth texture with well-integrated tannins giving this balance. Drink now...

The 2009 La Serre is a sleeper of the vintage and the best wine I have ever tasted from this property which sits on pure limestone soils. Amazingly supple and silky this blend of 90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc... The 2009 La Serre is a sleeper of the vintage and the best wine I have ever tasted from this property which sits on pure limestone soils. Amazingly supple and silky this blend of 90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc displays a big almost Southern Rhone-like nose of kirsch liqueur licorice and tobacco leaf while some powdered minerals clearly evoke the limestone terroir to its advantage. Medium to full-bodied plump and opulent this is a wine to drink in its first decade of life although I suspect it will last longer.
