Nicolas Potel (375ml), 2013 Bourgogne Pinot Noir

Red, Old World, Pinot Noir from Burgundy, France

Past wine – out of stock. See here instead

A full cherry nose, a beautiful lightish, see-through red colour, the taste of tart cherries with plenty of softish tannins. Goes well with hors d'oeuvres and subtly flavoured fish and white meat.

Why we recommend this wine
Drinkable red Burgundy is pretty expensive stuff. This is excellent value for money even if a bit more expensive than the other wines in our 'Everyday' range.

The wine
A full cherry nose, a beautiful lightish, see-through red colour, the taste of tart cherries with plenty of softish tannins derived from malolactic fermentation in large burgundian oak barrels. This is still young but opens up nicely after 30 mins or so. All in all an excellent example of what it is, an every-day drinking red burgundy.

The wine estate
The business is named after a highly respected grower/winemaker but he is no longer involved. It makes a large range of red and white wines from grapes the length and breadth of Burgundy. www.nicolas-potel.fr

Food and wine
An ideal red wine for foods where one ordinarily might drink white wine; so hors d'oeuvres and subtly flavoured fish and white meat.

Did you know?
Nicolas Potel’s wine businesses is called Dm de Bellene. You may wonder why he doesn’t use his own name as he used to. That is because Dm Nicolas Potel is owned by someone else and he lost an interesting court case that demonstrates that your name can become a brand.

Very good light Burgundy rouge
Really nice. At the light end: its colour is close to a darker rosé.  Fruity both on the nose and in the mouth, dry.  It went very well with some paté and French cheese, but another half was a fair match for a  chicken dish which had some tomato in it.
