2018 Sérafin Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Le Fonteny" (Previously $170)

SKU #1499993 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Another of the portfolio's highlights is the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Fonteny, a dramatic wine that soars from the glass with aromas of cherries, cassis, burning embers, dark chocolate and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent, its rich structuring tannins cloaked in ripe but lively fruit. (WK) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is aromatically quite similar to the Corbeaux if perhaps just slightly more elegant. The mouthfeel of the middle weight flavors is both sleeker and more energetic while exuding a subtle salinity on the sneaky long finish that also displays touches of bitter pit fruit character and warmth on the almost painfully intense finale. This is also very powerful, indeed it's unusually powerful for Fonteny and the chewy tannins make clear that it is going to need at least a decade to become sufficiently civilized to enjoy. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

91-94 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "North facing, on the rock. Purple black colour but the fruit on the nose is fresher than Corbeaux, more of a juicy black fruit here. It is tight and a little bit dry at the finish, to some extent the oak, but past history suggests that this will emerge as a butterfly after a long period in bottle. 11/2019."
