The Serafin 2008 Morey-St.-Denis Les Millandes – from roughly 60 and 50 year-old vines, and last tasted from cask – smells delightfully of fresh sour cherry, nutmeg, and pungent herbs, all of which migrate to a palate that is pungent, vivacious, and invigoratingly spicy. Hints of bacon fat and piquant cherry pit add to a savory, saliva-inducing finish, though there is a more austere and rugged sense of tannin here than in the other wines of this collection. This will be worth revisiting in 4-5 years and might well have 10-12 years’ potential. ||“In two thousand eight, the grapes had too much acid,” states Christian Serafin, “and in 2009, perhaps too much sugar,” he adds with a smile. Serafin says he had to perform a more rigorous de-leafing, green harvesting and triage in 2008 than in 2007. “It’s an awkward vintage for restaurants,” he points out about 2008, “because most of them sell the wines to be drunk young, and these wines will still not be very approachable at that stage.” Wine Advocate.June, 2010
