(Potel Nicolas Volnay En Chevret) Medium-plus colour. Deep dark, brambly fruit at the core, pepper at the top and just below there are hints of toffee and dark chocolate. In the mouth the acidity is faintly prickly which accentuates the tannin a little, but it’s padded with some fat and shows a little burst of red fruit in the mid-palate and more creamy edge in the finish. Every bottle from this case has so far had an unruly edge, but has been brim full of personality and complexity. Great fun still…
(Potel Nicolas Volnay En Chevret) Medium-plus cherry-red colour. A forward and stylish nose that is both wide and complex - high-toned red fruit and violets framed with caramel notes. Similar interest for the palate, if not the intensity of the top wines in the mouth then it matches for interest and complexity. The tannins are less elegant than some, but given the overall performance this is a minor quibble. A very lovely creamy finish. Excellent
(Potel Nicolas Volnay En Chevret) The first from this en-primeur case. Medium-plus cherry-red colour. A lovely ebullient, wide and complex nose, tons of interest, red fruit, violets and just a twist of caramel-oak. There's an equal measure of complexity and interest in the mouth - not the intensity or fineness of texture of Nicolas' Clos des Chênes or the Clos des Ducs from d'Angerville but today much more going on, plus a lovely, creamy, dreamy finish. This is a lovely 99 with more than enough interest - very, very nice.
