Dark Ruby color, Ripe red cherries and Raspberries on the nose. Also an earth component: wild mushrooms, some mint as well as cola. Acidity was only medium, the alcohol was medium plus, a bit higher than I would like. The fruit was very ripe on the palate, confirming al the red fruits but also getting some blackberries. Cola on the palate indicates some new oak, but very well integrated and by no mean intrusive. Nice long length. This wine was very good. Very ripe vintage, so I felt could use more acidity and a touch less acohol.

(Potel Nicolas Gevrey-Chambertin) This wine also starts a little slowly the glass, but after a short while the aromatics become quite interesting with faint coffee supporting a nice black fruit profile. In the mouth this is very wide and concentrated with a little grain to the tannin. There’s real mid-palate intensity and just a little oak texture on the long finish. Very high-class villages.
