1999 Nicolas Potel, Volnay Vieilles Vignes
Medium-plus ruby red. The nose is a real stunner; full of individual red berries – redcurrant and cranberry. The palate has an understated entry which starts narrow, opening wider as you move along with the acidity into the mid-palate. Silken with well covered tannins and a nice length. Wonderful villages despite the short note!
Rebuy – Yes
This wine spawned a search for unopened 99’s in the cellar – to be opened, starting tomorrow…
