potel 99 bourgogne maison dieu

Update 27.8.2007(26.8.2007)billn

1999 Nicolas Potel, Bourgogne Maison Dieutry to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus ruby-red colour. The nose is deep, with dark oak coating more distant baked red cherry, topped by higher-toned alcoholic notes. Initially good acidity starts to turn a little bright in the mid-palate and even faintly bitter as it runs into the finish – but I’m being picky here. To focus purely on the acidity ignores reasonably well grained tannin and ripe, oak coated fruit. This remains an above average and quite young bourgogne that is pretty well balanced and still needs a couple more years in the cellar – I decided it would always retain its oaky base, but to prove me wrong, on day two the remnants were largely free of it and very nice.
Rebuy – Maybe

    I actually thought this was not nearly so good as the 98 version, which surprised me greatly. The 98 had far more concentration and body.

    Hi Richard,
    I suppose it could come down to where the grapes were sourced – and it’s likely that these were different as NP was only into his second widely commercialised vintage (there were a few 96’s). Unfortunately I don’t think I ever tasted the 98…
    Cheers, Bill
