Serafin Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Corbeaux
Price: $102.21 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
Noticeable wood frames the ripe but cool essence of black cherry, earth and once again plenty of sauvage character. There is fine intensity to the rich and slightly finer medium weight flavors that possess fine complexity on the seamlessly balanced and persistent finish. Note that the mid-palate is sufficiently supple that this could be enjoyed on the younger side if you run out of patience!

The 2014 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Corbeaux offers darker fruit than the 2014 Fonteny with blackcurrant and bilberry, wild hedgerow and dried rose petal scents. The palate is medium-bodied with more fleshiness than the Fonteny on the entry, well-judged acidity with a slight muscular finish that will benefit from several years in bottle. Good potential here.

Bright medium red. Redcurrant, plum and a touch of reduction on the nose, with some obvious oak showing. Juicy and precise but a bit tight. Not especially sweet or pliant but the healthy acidity intensifies the red fruit flavors and energizes the middle palate. Finishes with firm tannic grip that calls for a little patience.
