Nicolas Potel is most well known for his negociant company, but whilst was running Maison Nicolas Potel, he began to create his own domaine in 1997. There are now 22 hectares of this estate which are currently being converted to organic (and partly biodynamic) farming. He has a wildly infectious energy, underpinned by a huge intellect and supremely clear of vision of what he wants his domaine and his wines to be. He is lucky enough to have always worked with old-vine fruit and practiced a relatively minimal intervention regime in the cellars. The wines are honest and transparent, consistently what the vintage gives you with no tricks produce something fake or unjust. Of course he's tweaked over the year’s, but generally the methodology has not wavered. 

The vines for his Cote de Nuits average about 75 years old (rarely seen here) and the wine is a very well crafted and subtle example of Pinot Noir. The wine has fermented with the grape clusters to ensure depth and structure, and has subsequently had one year in large French oak barrels.

Tasting Note:
The 2019 Côte de Nuits-Villages Vieilles Vignes over delivers! It's vibrantly fresh and well defined with fruit characters of red cherries, blackberry, ripe plum and bramble with forest floor, oak spice and fine grained tannin. The palate is an elegant, medium-bodied wine with gentle grip and a pleasant, saline finish. A delicious Côtes de Nuits Village. 

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and Medium- tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
