Domaine Christian Sérafin Père et Fils, Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru 1988

Serafin Gevrey Cazatiers 1988 #2

Bright garnet, watery rim.  Not as imperial as we would expect from a Serafin; this is more lissome and pastoral, its pure cherry heart more red than the usual Serafin black.  Firm and fine with a lurking perfume of forest floor, winter truffle, blood orange and sweet gamebird.   Resonant, mineralic backend.  We prefer this to the ’90; less concentrated, more articulation.  Like the ’90 it will last for ages.  A Cazetiers of finesse.  Now – 2020.
