Gevrey Chambertin VV, Domaine Serafin 2009
Here the nose is not only slightly riper but it's also notably more complex with sauvage and stone notes on the pungently earthy dark berry fruit aromas. The dense and altogether serious middle weight flavors are shaped by the very firm, indeed almost chewy, tannins on the extract-rich and palate staining finish. This moderately rustic wine is typically one of the best bets in the Serafin portfolio and I highly recommend the 2009 version to you.

Medium red. Full-blown aromas of coffee, mocha and game. Less fruity than the basic village wine but dense, sweet and nicely fresh, with a deep middle and plenty of medicinal reserve. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and persistent notes of chocolate, coffee and underbrush.

Firm and plump at the same time. Bumptious and chock full of pleasure. Though probably not for the very long term.
