Wine Spectator 91-93

Antonio Galloni - The 2022 La Serre is a dark, powerful wine. Black cherry, plum, gravel, incense, licorice and scorched earth are beautifully layered in this rather somber Saint-Émilion. The tannins need to soften, but there is certainly much to look forward to.

Decanter 94

Jane Anson - Slap bang on the limestone plateau, this has the most delicious delivery of slate, chocolate, crushed roses, salted cracker, liqourice root, and gentle blackberry, blackcurrant and loganberry fruit. Delicate and intense, real balance, highly enjoyable. 50% in new barrels for ageing, 50% in one year barrels.

James Suckling 93-94

A juicy and chewy red with crushed stone and hints of chalkboard with black fruits and nutmeg spice. Medium to full body. Structured finish. Very well done here.

Wine Advocate 93-95

Jeb Dunnuck - Coming from a 7-hectare vineyard located on the upper limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion, the 2022 Château La Serre reveals a dense purple/plum color as well as gorgeous aromatics of black raspberries, cassis, graphite, chalky minerality, spring flowers, and spice.

Vinous 91-93

Neal Martin - The 2022 La Serre was picked 7-26 September. Always one of the "hidden gems" amongst J-P Moueix's range, this is another in a line of seductive and finely-crafted wines from the Saint-Émilion estate. The bouquet "gushes" from the nose with copious kirsch, fresh fig and ebullient red fruit, perhaps a little glossy in style, yet it maintains impressive delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannins, fine acidity, lovely balance and more finesse than the preceding Pindefleurs. Wonderful purity. This La Serre comes highly recommended.

Parker 90-93

The 2022 La Serre is a notable success, offering up aromas of wild berries, cherries and rose petals, followed by a medium to full-bodied, supple and suave palate that's deep, seamless and sensual, with a bright core of fruit and a long, mineral finish. This seven-hectare estate, situated on the shallow soils of the limestone plateau next to La Clotte and Villemaurine on the one side and Trotte Vieille and Troplong Mondot on the other, is planted at 7,200 vines per hectare, with some 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. With this vintage, La Serre takes an appreciable step up in quality.
