Good color, a bit of fading. The nose is open, but a bit lightweight showing aromas of black raspberry, minerals, black tea and flowers. This is medium full bodied on the palate, with very good concentration and good finesse. The longish finish shows slightly unripe tannins and just enough acidity.
Popped and poured. Mature red and black cherry aromas with some dark chocolate hints. Balance of the same ripe and mature fruit flavors with earthy elements, nicely supported with good minerality, even if not much acidity. A little bit of Brett or some other slightly barnyardy element is a little more prominent than I'd prefer.
Bright red with sweet, stony aromas on the nose. A Vosne nose. Some bite on the palate, a middle weight with bright red fruits and very fine grained tannins. Needs more time to round out the bite with the fruit. Good persistence on the finish. My first 1er from Potel, I'll wait a year to pull the next cork, and have it with a meal instead of at a party.
