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

Serafin Gevrey Fontenys 1988

Bright garnet, faded rim.   This caresses the palate.  Mystic in its energy, all gossamer and mist: mineral-inflected red berries, mirabelle and citrus.  White truffle, sweet meat and a leafy garrigue.  A silken delicacy allied to filigree depth and nuance.  Russet finish.   More haunting than the Cazetiers; if it made a sound it might resemble a radio washed ashore from a shipwreck.   Alas, more finite in spirit and thus not the keeper of these two Gevrey premier crus.
