It’s quite a while since I last had one of these – my cellar tidy-up (2.5, from 10 sides of A4, so-far transposed…) has located many things worth revisiting!
1997 Nicolas Potel, Volnay
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose starts a little burly, but as the air does its work this lightens and offers a quite interesting red cherry conserve – far from complex, but very inviting – particularly so for a 97 – as many are a little herbal these days. Round, its full-textured impression has a little fat, though good acidity to support it. Nicely balanced and drinkable, this is a wine of indeterminate age but no obvious vintage pointers. Drinking rather well just now…
