Serafin Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Corbeaux
Price: $119.97 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
A hint of menthol sits atop the classic sauvage and pungent underbrush aromas of a classic Corbeaux together with plenty of earth and humus characters on the dark berry fruit suffused nose. There is fine density to the very round medium weight flavors that possess a textured and relatively powerful finish that is very Gevrey in style. This should age well and will need at least 6 years or so first to help mellow the firm supporting tannins.

The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru les Corbeaux, from nearly 50-year-old vines located just outside the Clos de Fonteny, has a tightly wound, slightly more floral bouquet than the Vieilles Vignes, if not quite the same degree of intensity. The palate is structured, masculine and standoffish with a correct and foursquare finish that is just missing a little persistence at the moment.
– Neal Martin, Robertparker.com, Score: 88-90
Dark red-ruby. High-pitched perfume of blackberry, bitter chocolate, violet and crushed stone accented by wild herbs and black pepper. Strong acidity gives shape and lift to the juicy black fruit and floral flavors. This very pure premier cru finishes with refined tannins and subtle saline minerality.
