  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($92) Deep red. Superripe aromas of black raspberry, violet, wild herbs and smoked meat; needs a racking. Sweet, rich and succulent, but a bit youthfully unforthcoming. Less detailed today than the Clos Saint-Denis but larger-scaled. Big, meaty, full and long. This should last longer than the Clos-Saint-Denis, but it does not come across as particularly austere today.

    Open, exciting, and jewelly nose. Very charming and fruity. Round and silky and utterly user-friendly. Gorgeous.

    This too has a very curious nose and is clearly in need of racking. The flavors are rich, sweet, supple and round with delicious but very forward, perhaps even too forward flavors. The finish is lacy and nicely elegant but as pretty and accessible as this is, it's perhaps a bit too open and expansive for what it is.

    Dark ruby. Subdued nose, earthy, strawberry. Smooth light strawberry. Good acid.

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.
