Selection of old sélection massale vines (i.e. grown from cuttings from the same vineyard), planted in south/southeastfacing hillside terraces. “Les Serines” is not a district; it refers to the local name for Syrah.

Tasting notes:
'Tasting like the blood of Syrah with its liquid blackberry, violets, flowers and peppery aromas and flavors, Yves' 2015 Saint Joseph les Serines is medium to full-bodied, seamless and silky, with high-quality tannin and a great finish. This cuvée comes from multiple terroirs and will spend 18 months in 40% new French oak.' – Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, 90-92/100

'An intense complex nose of dark fruit enhanced by spice and liquorice. Clean attack, then evolving into something rich, dense and rounded on the palate. Long, mineral finish. Silky, fine-grained tannins. Wine made for laying down; slightly hard when young. Best to wait 4-5 years, but it can also age 15 years or more.' – Winemaker

Viticulture:
High-density planting (8,000-10,000 vines per hectare). No insecticides or pesticides, few treatments (depending on weather), small amount of organic-only fertiliser, with respect of soil and vine balance. Vigour and yield control, leaf-thinning and green harvesting to promote grape maturation. Soils: granitic, shallow.

Vinification:
The grapes are hand-picked; and then sorted, crushed and partially destemmed in the cellar. Fermented in open, temperature-controlled vats for about 3 weeks, with regular cap-punching and pumping-over. Malolactic-fermented in barriques with native yeasts. Maturing: 18 months in barriques.
