Serafin Pere & Fils Charmes-Chambertin 2014
|Region||France, Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis|
|Brand||Serafin Pere & Fils|
Bright red with ruby tones. Ripe but subdued aromas of dark cherry, licorice, roast coffee and mocha verge on decadent. Sweet, broad, seamless wine with lovely density of texture and the concentration that comes from small berries (these old vines produced just 30 hectoliters per hectare in 2014, according to winemaker Bachotet). Even more opulent in the early going than the Cazetiers. Really mounts slowly and builds on the back end, finishing with sexy sweetness and substantial broad, dusty tannins. This wonderfully rich, full wine really transcends the vintage.
