Nicolas Potel (375ml), 2009, Nuits-Saint-Georges

Red, Old World, Pinot Noir from Burgundy, France

Full black fruits, red cherries, raspberries and spices; powerful and complex, a beautiful darkish, see-through red colour. Goes well with casseroles and grilled meats.

Why we recommend this wine
2009 was a great year for red Burgundy and this is drinking perfectly now.

The wine
Nuits-Saint-Georges is known for complex, powerful Pinot Noir. The grapes come from 10 different parcels of vines that are between 40 and 60 years old. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted manually on arrival in the winery. All the grapes are de-stemmed and cold macerated for 6 days before being fermented for ten days in steel tanks with regular punching down and pumping. The wine is then aged in new and old Burgundian oak barrels of 228 liters. Whilst quite mature is still needs time to open up.

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
Beef Bourguignon and Coq au Vin come to mind as does roast or grilled lamb. And, of course hard, cheeses.

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. Karen Millen also found that out recently.
