Sérafin Père et Fils 2006 Les Cazetiers Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

A big, bold wine, its fruits etched richly against the ripe tannins and spice. The sweet fig and plum flavors are balanced well with the refreshing raspberry juice acidity. A fine, dark wine that will age for several years.

Sérafin Père et Fils 2006 Les Millandes Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Morey-Saint-Denis)

Austere and mineral initially, this is a complex wine, showing Asian spices as well as dark plum and berry fruits. It is layered with powerful tannins, which give the wine almost as much structure as fruit. A powerhouse that will age well.

Sérafin Père et Fils 2006 Les Baudes Premier Cru Pinot Noir (Chambolle-Musigny)

From organic vineyards, this wine shows rich fruit and generous red berry flavors. There is ripe sweetness as well, with soft tannins from the fruit. At this stage, the toast element from the wood is too dominant, but this should soften over the next 3–4 years.

Sérafin Père et Fils 2006 Vieilles Vignes Pinot Noir (Gevrey-Chambertin)

Smoky, new-wood aromas and flavors cloak the black berry fruit in this wine. It has a hard edge at the moment, like concentrated wood juice. But there is fruit there, so give the wine two years and those powerful, brooding fruits will come through.
