Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
the nose reflects notes of cassis, dark currant, earth, the sauvage and discreet though again not invisible wood. There is even better richness and much more minerality to the broad-shouldered and robust flavors that terminate in a rustic, muscular and youthfully austere finish. Like the old vines Gevrey, this is decidedly old school in style and not surprisingly, is going to need plenty of cellar time. Drink 2029+
Like so many of the best producers in Burgundy, the key to Sérafin’s successes are old vines and low yields. Christian has taken painstaking efforts in the vineyard: Strict pruning, de-budding, green harvest, deleafing, yield restriction, triage and destemming of the fruit. The wines are not filtered and with an increase in new oak, these reds are rich, concentrated and age well.
