Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2007,
    Score: 92-94

    An intense and expressive nose of subtle wood spice combines with red pinot and black currant notes plus almost pungent warm earth notes that continue onto the big, robust and sleekly muscled full-bodied flavors that are linear and more obviously structured on the cool, fine and pure finish that goes on and on. Patience will be required but this should amply reward a decade or more in the cellar.

Producer

Maison Nicolas Potel

Nicolas grew up amongst the vineyards of Domaine de la Pousse d'Or where his father was winemaker and part owner for years. Unfortunately, Burgundy vineyards cost more than gold, so when Nicolas decided to set out on his own, he realised that the only feasible way would be to buy grapes from other producers and work as a négociant. He differs from others in the region in that most of his grapes now come from only 8 domaines that he manages himself. As a result, he is able to grow the grapes according to his specifications. Being a perfectionist, his parameters include organic farming methods as well as notably small yields.

Region

Grands Echézeaux

One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Much more compact and homogenous than the neighbouring Echezeaux, the Grands Echézeaux vineyards are owned by around twenty producers - very modest in Burgundian terms. The most celebrated producers include Domaines de la Romanee Conti, d'Eugenie and Mongeard-Mugneret. These fine wines are richly complex yet balanced and have enormous ageing potential.
