Spending any time with Nicolas Potel in Burgundy can't help but to make even the most ardent of critics a lifelong convert. Nicolas is another man of boundless energy but his approach is very organic, adhering to the natural rhythms wherever possible. Such an unforced, careful, natural and sensitive approach is reflected perfectly in his wine and Nicolas has brought a breath of fresh air to Burgundy over the last decade and more. Quite simply, he remains one of Burgundy's brightest talents.
Pure and bright on the nose with spring blossom and delicate citrus, the palate shows more weight with lemon peel and preserved lemon and complex notes of almond. Lovely balance between fruit weight, freshness and a fine vein of acidity. Drink from 2019.Armit Wines
A wine with impressive power and depth on the nose. Sweet, redcurrant and cassis notes give way to richer, exotic fruit characters on the palate balanced by firm, ripe tannins. This is an exotic, almost hedonistic wine, with layers of deep fruit. Drink 2016.
creamy with crème anglaise lasted through with bright citrus and a hint of jasmin. This bold wine is underpinned by a fine chalky minerality and the finish is incredibly long. Drink from 2020.Armit Wines
Rich, dark spicy oak and dark chocolate lead into sweet, black cherry fruit. The tannins are fine and grippy and there is a firm vein of minerality running throughout the wine. The finish is long, powerful, precise and rich. Drink from 2025.Armit Wines
