2005’s from nicolas potel pt.3

Three more bottled wines:
2005 Nicolas Potel, Nuits St.Georgestry to find this wine...
A fresh and forward, though initially slightly diffuse nose of predominantly red fruit – becomes more interesting and ‘coulis’ in style in the glass. The concentrated palate strikes a masculine pose. Good acidity and intensity too. The finish is a good one, there’s nothing wimpy about this rather ‘honest’ bottle of Nuits. Recommended.
Rebuy – Yes
2005 Nicolas Potel, Gevrey-Chambertintry to find this wine...
This wine also starts a little slowly the glass, but after a short while the aromatics become quite interesting with faint coffee supporting a nice black fruit profile. In the mouth this is very wide and concentrated with a little grain to the tannin. There’s real mid-palate intensity and just a little oak texture on the long finish. Very high-class villages.
Rebuy – Yes
2005 Nicolas Potel, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Lavaux St.Jacquestry to find this wine...
Medium-plus colour. The nose is similar to the village gevrey – if anything tighter, more understated and consistent. Very intense; this is hard to keep in your mouth. Super acidity dovetails with plenty of tannin. Despite the concentration the personality is rather cool, clean, mineral and understated.
Rebuy – Yes
