serafin chambolle musigny les baudes

2001 Sérafin Père et Fils, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Les Baudes try to find this wine...
Medium-plus colour – still holding onto that cherry-red hue. The nose is deep with sweet, dark oak and just as dark cherry floating above. In the mouth there’s plenty of oak-derived sweetness, and it’s dark, well toasted oak that mirrors the nose – on the positive side, it’s so well done that I have no expectation that it will become ‘ashy’ with time. The mouth-feel is plush, and the acidity helps push the mid-palate’s burst of interest well into a long finish. Hedonistic, yet despite trying to discount my lack of favour for the style, I still can’t get over the fact that I feel the chambolle-ness has been lost. Expertly made, very tasty and I expect will have a good, long life. I only miss the sense of place, I suspect that others may disagree.
Rebuy – Maybe

    Yeppers…having tried several Serafin Baudes, I concur.
    It’s a pretty big wine. To their credit, the 97 is still drinking well, but it does omit that characteristic piercing strawberry and nose of other Chambolle vintners. For example, dig up one of those 01 Roumier Ch-M villages.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
