Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2020

    Named after the source of a spring to the village, the east/west aspect of this vineyard affords sunshine exposure throughout the day. Brilliant purple in colour, it has appealing savoury and dark hedgerow fruit aromas. In the palate one can taste the mocha and spice of the new oak, but this works perfectly with the lovely rich sensation of fruit. Hugely giving in style and a wine of real depth on the finish.

    Here too there is sufficient reduction to blur the nuances of the nose though it seems reasonably clear that the fruit is ripe. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension on the refined and pure middle weight flavors that are not especially dense, but they are definitely finer and more mineral-driven while exhibiting a touch of youthfully austere on the highly refreshing and sneaky long finale.

    There is more fruit ripeness and less obvious coarse extraction here and the result is the most successful wine so far in this line-up. The balance is just about on cue and this will age slowly but surely, too, so I am happy with this wine.

    Lovely mid purple, the nose is intense, clean and pure. Brilliant rich fruit from the very start, with its usual coating of oak, but this is complete, powerful and fine, with the weight of a wine where the clay is a little more in evidence than the limestone. It certainly offers an extra degree of body compared to the lighter yet elegant Corbeaux. 4 Star

Producer

Domaine Sérafin Père et Fils

The Sérafin family are part of the establishment in Gevrey Chambertin. From when he took over from his father in the 1960 until his recent retirement, if you ever want to get in touch with Christian, you either had to call him as the rooster crowed in the morning or long after the sun had set. The rest of the time, he was working out in the vines or deep in his cellars. The domaine is now run by cousins Frédérique and Karine who are continuing the family tradition of making bold and structured wines. Their Pinots benefit from a period of bottle age and typically express fine tertiary characteristics. They do not fine or filter their wines, and only rack when necessary. Not shy of new oak, they use up to 50% on their straight Bourgogne and often 100% on the rest of their cuvées depending on the concentration. The wines tend to be ample and fleshy, and the richest ones need some cellaring in order to better integrate the spicy, cedarwood flavours.

Region

Gevrey-Chambertin

The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.
