Domaine Christian Sérafin Père et Fils, Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru 1995

Serafin Gevrey Cazatiers 1995

Twenty years on.

Saturated ruby.  If you appreciate the works of William Faulkner than you can’t help but take a shine to Christian Sérafin.  The style is backward, ancestral, unerring.  He’s a Kacher import so he’s got his bark on.  But be patient, black curtains of oak lift effortlessly and the layered bramble fruit surges forward, muscular but no longer hard.  The finish is a primordial mushroom broth, penetrating and unsullied by the oak.  Un vin a l’ancienne, still only halfway between youthfulness and maturity.  Now – 2020+.
