  • Burghound | Rating: 93

    A fascinating and beautifully deep nose of leather, wood spice and iron-infused dark berry fruit aromas sits atop the rich and full-bodied but not robust flavors that are delicious, suave and mouth coating on the sappy and almost perfectly balanced finish. This may very well add depth with time in bottle but for the moment, the GE would appear to have slightly better material as well as better integration of the oak treatment.

    The 2005 Clos St.-Denis represents but a two-barrel lot, smelling deeply of fresh black cherry with hints of pungently smoky Latakia tobacco, black tea, salt and lemon zest. A deep, savory soy and roasted meat character along with suggestions of chalk and wet stone on the palate, lead to a vibrant, strikingly pure and intensely fruity, saline finish. This whole wine gives the effect of multiple, oscillating layers of flavor.

  • 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.
