(Potel Nicolas Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Peuillets) The colour is becoming quite mature. On the nose it’s instantly about warm confiture with a powdery core of red fruit. Soft, relatively concentrated and shows a good burst of interest in the mid-palate and decent density - it needs just a hint more acidity for me but the length is good. Overall an interesting and tasty if not covetable wine.
(Potel Nicolas Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Peuillets) I must have loved this one when I first tasted it as there were another 6 in the cellar which I found whilst tidying up. The colour is starting to show a little age. The nose has a little high toned fruit but mostly it's a dense, slightly sweet affair. The palate shows the vintage without the 'puppy fat' the fruit has reasonable density, but there seems to be some acidity missing making the wine much less refreshing and succulent than I remember it on release - perhaps I should have drunk these at the time(?) Still they'll be handy when I need an extra bottle for something/one, after-all they were quite reasonably priced - I think! It's a perfectly okay wine, but not in the class of Pavelot's 00 Dominode.
(Potel Nicolas Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Peuillets) Medium-plus colour - already turning to ruby from cherry. The nose starts with wood, and plenty of it. With aeration there is black cherry, coffee and chocolate. Good acidity and nice concentration of blackberry and raspberry. The tannins are close to being completely covered by the fruit. The finish is long, but slightly harsh from the wood. Very good potential and a good drink today to boot.
