  • Goedhuis, December 2011

    Spicy and opulent with notes of bourbon vanilla, sweet red cherries, strawberries and ‘pêche de vigne'. This powerful Charmes Chambertin has all the intensity of 2010 and then some. Its chewy,firm tannins are beautifully enveloped in its impressive sweet core. This will age beautifully.

  • Burghound, January 2013, Score: 94

    (from 55+ year old vines totaling .29 ha with .125 ha in Charmes and the other .165 ha in Mazoyères). A deft application of wood does not reduce the considerable appeal of the ripe, pure and airy nose that is classic Gevrey from a cool vintage with its broad array of wild red berry fruit, earth, humus and a hint of animale. The broadshouldered flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration that enrobes the buried but still quite firm but fine-grained tannins while culminating in a beautifully balanced, robust and explosively long finish. This is also very clearly built to age and will require most of a 12 to 15 year cellar siesta to arrive at its apogee but it should be well worth the wait. Drink 2022+

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.Read less

Region

Charmes Chambertin

Charmes-Chambertin is one of the nine Grand Crus vineyards within the Gevrey Chambertin area. On gentle slopes, sheltered from the elements by woods to the north, gravelly soil forces the vines to work hard. Relatively large for a Grand Cru appellation, it is hard to generalise about the wines. Often intensely perfumed and seductive, Charmes-Chambertin can be approachable earlier than its Grand Crus neighbours.
