Serafin Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2006
The ultra-meticulous Christian Sérafin practices organic cultivation, hard pruning and ruthless fruit selection. Although the domaine is only six hectares in size it covers nine different appellations. Christian’s reserved manner conceals a passion for his métier and a very genuine warmth for those who share his passion. The wines are marked by their concentration, richness and stylish use of new oak. Seriously good wines. Begins with a powerful bouquet of black cherry and oak with a smoky vanilla undertone. The fruit carries to the elegant and deep palate. Lots of promise, but needs time. Come back to this after 2013.
