Domaine Christian Sérafin Père et Fils, Gevrey-Chambertin Les Fontenys 1er Cru 1990

Serafin Fontenys 1990

Twenty-five years on tasting.

Lacquered ruby.  Has a resolution to him today, his baroque toastiness and Gevrey might now a rich fondue, the texture of plush velvet.  Similar to the cookery found in the 89s, this Fontenys more sweet meat to Cazatiers game.  Unlike the ’89s, an affirming acidity, rounded off over twenty-five years for drinking, it lengthens the wine, gives his seared matière definition and purpose.  Expansive finish.  Old-school Bourgogne with a bright future.  Now – 2020+.
