Maison Nicholas Potel, Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru 2005

Potel Meursault Genevrieres 2005 #1

Lemon-yellow with golden hints.  An outsized wine: citrus crème, baking spice and cut flowers.  Then orchard and tropical fruit – ripe to the point of drenched.  Semi-solid extract levels, quite concentrated – plenty of material.  Rich mid-palate swell.  A bit sweet – modest acidity levels give it the impression of residual sugar.  Very ’05.  Somewhat diffuse minerality at the end; more caramel and oak-spice.  It tilts towards exotic and runs a bit fat.  Yet there is substance here.  Extrovert Genevrières.  Drink soon.
