another potel – 2002 this time

aloxe boutieres potel
2002 Nicolas Potel, Aloxe-Corton Les Boutièrestry to find this wine...
This was lush, sweet and full of joie-de-vivre from barrel and also for it’s first 18 months in bottle – it was great fun – it’s now a different wine. It still retains that medium-plus cherry red colour and the nose is high toned and fresh though has now lost some bass notes. There is still sweetness and it retains a well-concentrated punch in the mid-palate, but today this wine has lost much of the lush foil to the acidity. It’s fresh and certainly not overly acidic now – but it’s more obviously tart than before. The last 5 or 6 can spend some time resting now…
Rebuy – Yes
