The flagship of the Northern Rhône Valley, Domaine de Bonserine produces one of the most moving wines in its appellation. With a heritage of old vines, ultra-luxurious aging, and complete control over grape ripeness, few cuvées reconcile power and finesse in such a nuanced expression.

In Côte Rôtie, where it accumulates the most prestigious terroirs - Côte Blonde, Côte Brune, Moutonne, Sarrasine - the vineyard benefits from the oldest hillside terroirs in Ampuis, consisting of old Syrah vines locally known as "serine."
