Domaine Christian Sérafin Père et Fils, Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru 1993

Serafin Gevrey Cazatiers 1993

Fullish ruby.  Endlessly suggestive nose of metallic, forested, leathery and sweet-smoky scents.  The fruit is mulberried, old-viney, layered, and marrow-rich.  Then active and grippy, it finishes long and complex, a minerality thick with oolitic white marl and stone.  The Sérafin wines can be forceful and impervious in their youth, particularly the new-oaky U.S. Kacher imports.  Now twenty years on, this Cazetiers has set aside its Calvinist upbringing, letting its composure show, emerging more beneficent.  Miles to go.  Now – 2025.
