Château le Serestin Vieux is that rare Bordelaise producer who still uses all five of the allowable Bordeaux grapes in their blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec). The result is a pretty wine from the great 2005 vintage, featuring aromas of plum, blackcurrant, spice and tobacco leaf. Dry and silky smooth, there is also plenty of grip here to reward cellaring (2-5 years). But why wait when it’s this good?
