Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Corbeaux 2012, Domaine Sérafin

GEVR640
This is truly one of Burgundy's greatest domaines. I know of no other winemaker who manages to seduce such power from the Pinot Noir without losing its inimitable elegance. There are no poor vintages at this domaine.

Domaine Christian Sérafin

This domaine produces some of the finest, traditional wines of the Gevrey Appellation. Frédérique Goulley, the niece of Christian Sérafin, who has been working alongside her uncle for over ten years now, is now very much the winemaking driving force at the domaine, while Christian slows down. Although the baton has been handed over, the wine making philosophy hasn’t changed. These wines are hand crafted, with old vines and low yields central to the winemaking here. A cool ten day maceration helps create a stunning richness and concentration with the diligent use of new oak and the non-filtration of the wines being key to the Sérafin style. They continue to destem around 70% of the bunches. The grapes are fermented at a relatively high temperature and enjoy up to 100% new oak ageing.

Tasting Notes

The limestone soil gives a tight, minerally structure to the winewhich supports an intense cherry and cassis fruit. Beautiful soft tannins give balance and the length is impressive.

Food Matches

A perfect partner for rare roast beef with seasonal vegetables and yorkshire pudding.
