- Pre-Arrival Offering -
 
This $21.99 Bordeaux is "Without Question One of the Sleepers of the Vintage."
           
 

Prices of wines from the prestigious left bank communes of Bordeaux - Saint-Julien, Saint-Estèphe, Pauillac and Margaux - have been on the rise in recent years. 

Today, we present the antidote to that problem in the form of special pre-arrival pricing on a remarkable Saint-Estèphe from Château Sérlihan!

"The 2019 Sérilhan is a total knock out."
            - Antonio Galloni

This "ripe and succulent" wine that "shimmers with energy" is now quietly maturing in barrel at the estate's cellar in Saint-Estèphe. Early in 2021, it will be bottled, allowed to rest for a few months and then shipped to wine lovers around the world. 

As the universally ardent reviews from Antonio Galloni, Neal Martin, James Suckling, Decanter and Wine Advocate demonstrate, the 2019 Sérilhan looks like it is going to be a showstopper! We are thrilled to offer it now - a full 10 months before its expected arrival in Chicago - for a special pre-arrival price of just $21.99.

2019 Chateau Sérilhan Saint-Estèphe
Bordeaux, France
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This Bordeaux estate is almost completely unknown in the United States. Based on the seriously enthusiastic reviews from everyone who has tasted the 2019 vintage, however, that anonymity may soon be coming to an end!

"It is without question one of the sleepers of the vintage. 
In a word: impressive."
- Antonio Galloni, June 2020

With this 2019 bottling, the estate celebrates several milestones: 1) The 20th anniversary of the estate's reinvention as a modern Bordeaux producer, 2) The first year with legendary Alain Raynaud as oenologist, and 3) The first vintage since earning elevation to Cru Bourgeois Supérieur status.

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the 2019 Château Sérilhan is silky, plush and charismatic. At today's pre-arrival price of $21.99, it also happens to be a rip-roaring overachiever...

"The 2019 Sérilhan is a total knock out. A rush of grilled herb, inky dark fruit, licorice and menthol notes hit the palate as the 2019 makes a strong opening statement. Deep and virile in feel, the 2019 has so much to offer. It is without question one of the sleepers of the vintage. In a word: impressive."
- 92 to 94 Points, Vinous - Antonio Galloni (6/2020)

"The 2019 Sérilhan, attired in a very chic blue label now, conveys real quality on the nose with well defined blackberry, cedar and sous-bois aromas that seem very pure and nuanced. The palate is ripe and succulent on the entry, yet there are genuinely very fine tannins here, lending this Saint-Estèphe a silky texture à la 2016 and a persistent, gratifying finish. Bon vin! Drinking Window: 2024 - 2028"
- 92 to 94 Points, Vinous - Neal Martin (6/2020)

"A solid core of ripe fruit and spice here. It's full-bodied, creamy and chewy. Pretty fruit at the end."
- 92 to 93 Points, James Suckling (6/3/2020)

"First year as Cru Bourgeois Superieur, and what a tough year to take advantage of this new classification. But this clearly shows why it deserves it - grip, freshness, blueberry and raspberry fruits layered up with charcoal and gentle smoke. There is austerity, and quite a serious amount of tannin, although they are flexible and silky in style. Alain Raynaud is new consultant at the estate. Drinking Window: 2025 - 2038."
- 92 Points, Decanter (5/29/2020)

"With a deep garnet-purple color, the 2019 Serilhan bursts from the glass with notes of ripe blackcurrants, boysenberries, black raspberries and cedar chest plus nuances of red roses, pencil lead and camphor. The medium-bodied palate shimmers with energy, featuring tons of crunchy black fruit and a finely grained texture, lifted by fantastic tension, finishing long and perfumed. Impressive!
- 91 to 93 Points, Wine Advocate (7/9/2020)

Looking online we found 19 listings for Château Sérilhan, with vintages ranging from 2009 to 2016 and a median price of $35. At our special pre-arrival price, their "knock out" 2019 vintage is an extraordinary opportunity that is well worth the wait!
