  • Low profile might be more of a compliment than this wine deserves. Not only is the palate thin and unrewarding, but the residual taste that lingers in the finish is that of unripe fruit. Only a decent nose saves this wine from being a complete debacle.

  • This is my last bottle of the 2000 Potel wines I bought last summer for a steal at about $25 each, all Nuit St. George. Nicolas Potel was recently fired from his post at the negociant house he created and sold to a new owner. He stayed on board to manage and supervise but seems like he was ultimately squeezed out. 2000 was not a great vintage, so these wines are lighter ans less nuanced compared to a good vintage.

    Color: light ruby red and pink rose petal edges
    Nose: Dried red fruits, citrus spritz combined with earth
    Palate: Noticeable tannin and acidity, tart cherry, some spicy plum, not much nuance left though, probably past its peak.
