Domaine Christian Sérafin Père et Fils, Gevrey-Chambertin Les Fontenys 1er Cru 1991

Vigorous crimson, faded rim.  Capacious, organic, penetrating nose: a musky mix of reds and blacks, old farmyard straw, mace, sweaty saddle leather, well-hung game.  Succulent, velvety and more firmly black-fruited on the palate: creme de mure, leafy black currant, morello cherry. Active grip.  Just a frame of melted tannin but this pivots off its acid spine.  Vibrant, sumptuous Fontenys.  Now – 2020+.
