Relatively light but quite attractive without a huge amount of complexity, fair acidity and a touch of fine tannin, some earthy secondary flavours and a medium finish. It may develop a bit more interest with more time, but I wouldn't like to bet on it.
Nose of musty cherry and paprika (!). Palate of cherry, developing to stewed tomatoes. A bit thin. Slightly irregular transition to finish of coffee and slate. Although very interesting, we felt like we "were working too hard" to give it a 90 to actually give it a 90.

(Potel Nicolas Volnay Vieilles Vignes) The Potel signature wine is, in 2006, a compendium of around 12 separately vinified parcels whose vines average out at 60+ years old. The nose is wide with a nice complexity of dried berries; cranberry, redcurrant and black cherries - very nice. The palate has good intensity and a background of ripe tannin. The finish is a good one. - recommended as always.
