    ($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.

    This is squarely in its drinking window. A silky mouthfeel with generous fruit and a long finish that lasts about 30 seconds. Beginning to display that distinctive mushroomy burgundy character. Fruit profile leans more towards black cherries. Drink now through 2022.

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.
