The Serafin 2006 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Corbeaux smells of ripe cassis and roasted red meat; mingles bittersweet black fruit with savory, saline meat-stock on a palate that uncannily combines concentration with fluidity and lift; and finishes with considerable animal and mineral nuance, an invigoratingly crisp edge, and genuine refreshment. More fun to drink than the 2005 was at the same stage, this archetype of 2006 virtues should nonetheless be worth following for at least half a dozen years. ||Vineyard manicure and green harvesting – to hear Christian Serafin tell it – were keys to success in 2006, and he managed to achieve very ripe results. Fascinatingly, these include both wines that are quintessentially 2006, and some that seem destined to capture a combination of structure and energy reminiscent of 2005. Serafin, by the way, is a grower who explicitly recognizes the challenges in steering a course between concentration and elegance, rather than taking the latter for granted as part of his and his vines' birthright.
