($42) Good dark red. Subdued aromas of ripe plum and chocolate, with a hint of surmaturite Broad, sweet and harmonious, with lush plum, mocha and leather flavors enlivened by sound acidity. With aeration, a lively floral nuance emerged and the wine gained substantially in vinosity. The youthful, rising finish features fresh flavors of sour cherry and minerals. Good, honest, flavorful village wine with a suave character.

Potel's 2005 Volnay Vieilles Vignes - representing an inordinately large lot for him, and assembled from seven different parcels, some premier cru - offers aromas and flavors of lightly cooked cherry and blackcurrant tinged with vanilla, licorice and black chocolate. Quite full and imposingly ripe, it just lacks a bit for sap and juiciness, offering a relatively foursquare finish.

Rich and full of cherry, raspberry and violet aromas and flavors. This is pure and dense, staining the palate right through to the lingering aftertaste of cherry compote.
