Still youthful looking with medium ruby core fading to somewhat pinkish rim. On the nose, mostly red fruit with notes of fresh plum. Some prominent meaty notes. Good acidity. Medium finish and body. Velvety tannins. Not particularly complex, but IMO a very good village Burgundy nonetheless that shows the characters of the terroir: robust and maybe with a touch sauvage. Drinking well now but could hold for another 3 to 5 years.
Nose: Similar to last notes on 2/18/13 but now additive aromas of fresh mint leaves as a counterbalance to the Burg funk and earth. Fantastic nose! Palate: Still the cranberry flavors at the forefront with strawberry undertones and the light to medium finish. At almost 9 years old this village level Burg has matured so well. It still has vibrancy, good acid levels, and although feminine, still has plenty of life left. Too bad it's my last bottle as it would be an interesting experiment to let another bottle go for about 3-4 more years and then check in on it, but too many wines to try and it's time to move on. Really like Potel Burgs.

(Potel Nicolas Nuits St.Georges) A fresh and forward, though initially slightly diffuse nose of predominantly red fruit - becomes more interesting and ‘coulis’ in style in the glass. The concentrated palate strikes a masculine pose. Good acidity and intensity too. The finish is a good one, there’s nothing wimpy about this rather ‘honest’ bottle of Nuits. Recommended.
