Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94-95

A dramatic combination of black truffle, flowers, roasted meat, ripe black cherry and chocolate rise from the glass of Potel's 2005 Latricieres-Chambertin, which then paves the palate in wet stone, bitter chocolate, and cherry liqueur. For all of its creaminess of texture, enveloping side, clarity of fruit, and refinement of tannin, this finishes with an iron grip and an electric charge of spice and high-toned fruit esters. Lock it away for at least 8-10 years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

Offers fine purity and concentration. Black cherry, blackberry and floral notes are tightly wound with the racy structure and dense tannins. This is balanced and shows excellent potential, but it needs time to reveal all its facets.

About This Producer

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.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
