Cellar/Tasting Notes
Christian Serafin Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Le Fonteny France 2011 750ml
Burghound (BH): 90-92
This is slightly more elegant still with its complex aromas of both red and dark pinot fruit, iron-infused earth, wet stone and a hint of forest floor. There is a cool precision and punch to the attractively textured middle weight flavors that possess ripe and firm supporting tannins on the ever-so-slightly bitter finish. Like the Gevrey villages cuv?e, the structure seems sufficiently ripe that the bitterness should dispel in time.
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 90-92
Good deep red. Aromas of blackberry, smoke and minerals, plus a whiff of gibier. Silky, dense and concentrated, showing a very fine-grained texture to the dark berry flavors. Still youthfully tight on the back end but this is essentially a feminine style of Gevrey, with a creaminess that comes from small berries. (Incidentally, another sample taken from a Seguin-Moreau barrel showed a bit less mid-palate sweetness and a slightly musclebound finish.)
