"Potel’s 2005 Clos de la Roche smells sweetly of cherry liqueur, blond tobacco, honey and iris. If this were a white wine if would be a nobly sweet one. Explosively intense in the mouth, with sappy, sweet cherry, quarry dust, tobacco, pungent flowers, citrus zest, and gradually emerging hints of game, it finishes with almost indelible sweetness and complexity." Wine Advocate
This is the best year for Burgundy since records began and you cannot ask for more with Nicolas Potel at the helm. Renowned for getting the best out of his high quality vines, this simply outstanding wine gives the fullest expression of the famous terroir. Brilliant notes of violets and fruits with breathtaking texture. The Clos de la Roche is situated in the village of Morey St. Denis in the Côte de Nuits south of Gevrey-Chambertin. Maison Nicolas Potel combines the classical elegance of traditional Burgundy and a modern, dynamic outlook. Based in the heart of the Cote d’Or, in Nuits Saint Georges, they hand craft their wines to produce balanced fruit-forward reds, and fresh, pure whites. Each appellation is produced in small volumes, with minimum intervention. Their philosophy is based on the respect of the terroir and centuries of Burgundian know-how, which has led them to believe that an organic, hands-off approach is best suited to express the individuality of the wines.
