Serafin Pere & Fils Gevrey Chambertin Le Fonteny 2007
|Region||France, Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis|
|Brand||Serafin Pere & Fils|
Plum, dark cherry, and licorice accented with mace and black pepper characterize Serafin's 2007 Gevrey-Chambertin Fonteny, which combines subtle creaminess of texture with a surprisingly bright sense of fresh fruit juiciness for its vintage. Hints of dark coffee and mocha manage to offer attractive counterpoint rather than any sense of awkward contrast with the tart aspects of the fruit. The diversity as well as persistence of flavors here, along with the wine's refinement of texture, suggest to me 6-8 year's aging potential.
