Nicolas Potel Bourgogne Pinot Noir 750ml - 22667
Nicolas Potel has built an international reputation by sourcing wines from the finest vineyards in Burgundy. Winemaker Brigitte Putzu is intently focused on the finest selection and vinification of the most sustainable, organic, and biodynamic sites they can get ahold of. In the cellar, she keeps intervention to a minimum in order to best transpose the vineyard site from vine to glass. The wine is vinified in stainless steel and then aged for about 5-6 months in neutral oak barrels to give the wine some texture. It is ruby red in color – so bright and clean you can read through it! It has red and black berries, cherries, blackcurrant, licorice and spice notes on the nose. On the palate it is smooth, with a nice length of red cherries and black fruits on the finish. The tannins are silky and well balanced resulting in a harmonious and easy drinking wine. Enjoy with poached eggs in red wine sauce – the famous “Oeufs Meurette”, cured meats, salmon entrees, ratatouille and creamy cheeses such as French Camembert .
