  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($93) Medium red. Aromas of cherry, raspberry, mocha and spicy oak. Juicy and firmly built, with lovely cherry flavor lifted by a floral element. Perfumed, spicy wine that's currently showing a good bit of sweet oak on the lingering finish.

    Soft and pleasant, with some plum, floral, black currant notes. Medium-bodied, with ripe tannins, which, surprisingly, turn a bit dry on the medium-intense finish.

    Interesting floral and red fruit notes cut with a hint of minerality introduce pure, medium weight flavors that offer excellent acid/fruit balance. There is good harmony here and fine finishing elegance and detail. I like the style of this as it has intensity, fine length, a nice touch of class and enough structure to warrant aging this for 7 to 10 years.

  • Nicolas Potel founded La Societe Nicolas Potel in 1997 after the sale of Pousse d'Or, which had been run by his father, Gerard Potel, since 1964. Though he has no vineyards of his own, Nicolas has been able to source grapes from some of the most prestigious vineyards in the Cote d'Or and by 2002 had 120 cuvees in production from 50 appellations. His fruit sources meet strict requirements including prime vineyard sites, a minimum of 35-year-old vines, and organic or even bio-dymanic farming. Potel makes wines that are richer and fuller than the more traditional style Burgundy.
