Producer

Domaine Potinet-Ampeau

Potinet-Ampeau is a lesser known domaine located in Monthélie, though they also have cellars in Meursault. They work around 21 hectares which is comprised of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay making up a total of 19 appellations. Moderately traditional, they believe in 'natural' viticulture using no chemical herbicides and also use an older style mechanical press (like their neighbour, Coche Dury) to extract the most from their grapes. Their wines are aged in Allier barrels though only a maximum of 30% are new. This enables the terroir and the variety's character to shine through without being overly dominated by oak. Their resulting wines are fresh, clean and balanced, and a delight to drink.

Region

Meursault

Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations in Burgundy, Meursault has no grand cru vineyards. It nonetheless has significant flair and power which make up for this deficiency. Indeed, if tasted blind some of these wines could even surpass other Burgundian grand crus. They are no fainting daisies. This may partially be due to Meursault's lower water table which enables the roots to delve deep in the soil picking up many trace minerals and which further stresses the vines. In addition, the cellars are more profound and cooler, enabling long fermentations, which increase complexity and longevity. Some interesting red wines are also made.
