Nice nutty oak start, leading into fresh mineral fruit notes of granny smith apple which was almost a little too tart for me Given more time this will hopefully lose the tartness and will be a very nice wine
Discounted to £6 a bottle, this was a very good minor white burgundy. Subtle oak and fruit nose - very youthful. Nice citrus flavours, bright acidity without being tart and gentle oak in the background. Ripe, round and good length of flavour. This is good and 2-3 years in bottle could be interesting. Buy more.

(Nicolas Potel Santenay Vieilles Vignes) Aromatically it is very much a wine of Burgundy, showing very restrained fruit, with cashew nut and citrus zest nuances coming in from behind, as well as a very prominent matchsticky reduction, a characteristic which I find really appealing. It is admirably composed on the palate, with a pithy substance to it and a fresh, punchy weight. There is plenty of grip through the middle and finish, supporting what is a very tight fruit profile. This is a wine more about grip and pithy substance than any fruit softness. And there is quite a long, grippy finish to it. Overall, a good wine, which I am sure would develop very nicely with a few years in the cellar.
