Maison Nicolas Potel, Santenay, 1976


A mature Pinot Noir from the 1976 vintage having a lovely ruby colour with an amber tint. The nose has spice, tobacco and fig notes and the wine attacks the palate with great flavours of dried fruit, blackberries and a hint of liquorice. Its complexity is due both to its great age and well-crafted nature.

This exquisite Maison Nicolas Potel Santenay from the 1976 vintage has a lovely ruby colour and amber tint. The nose is full of spice, tobacco and fig notes and the wine attacks the palate with great flavours of dried fruit, blackberries and a hint of liquorice, all layered and complex owing to its great age and well-crafted nature. A good example of a gracefully mature red Burgundy. The grapes for this wine were hand-picked and manually sorted and the wine matured in 3 year old oak barrels.

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.

Interesting vintage Review by Tom
Slightly charred nose and cloudy ruby colour. Fruit a little short as might be expected from its age. Shortish finish and possibly not at it's best yet still a very interesting wine with subtle complexity. Have a few bottles of this and look forward to drinking the rest. (Posted on 20/01/2013)
