Unplanned Nicolas Potel Session (B&B Parkway): Tasted blind. Pop and pour. Drank over 2+ hours. Appearance is clear, pale intensity, garnet colour. Legs. Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of fragrant earth, sweet spice, leather, black cherries, dark plums, and hints of soy sauce. Developed. On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium alcohol (13%), dusty medium+ tannins, medium+ body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of black cherries, dark plums, slight prunes, leather, earth. Medium+ finish. Good quality Nuits wine. Dark feel. Drinking well now. Unlikely to improve much more with further age.
Bright raspberry red. Intensive and complex nose of poached red fruit underlying earthy and wet stone aromas and some, maybe floral note on top. In the mouth very smooth, full bodied, balanced with sweet fruit and dusty tannins. Excellent length.
Dark ruby red in color. Deep brooding aromas of dark plums, black cherries, iron dust, charcuterie, graphite and forest floor. A rather masculine and four-squared palate shows good definition to the sweet black fruits, hung meat, medium plus acidity, a long finish with a whiplash of blood and iron.
