Maison Nicholas Potel, Volnay Les Pitures 1er Cru 1999

isPotel Volnay Pitures 1999

Imported by Fredrick Wildman and Sons, New York NY.

Saturated ruby.  His droiture is distinctly Pitures, with marrow-rich vinosity more Pommard than Volnay and a quivering mineral streak that could only come from a site more stone than soil. Quetsch fruit with lapidary cut. Always ample, the Pitures minerality can be a bit blatant: this example from Nicky has a touch more polish.  Still some tannin to resolve; give him time.  Now – 2025+.
