2006 Maison Nicolas Potel, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Les Fuées

This wine made such an impression when tasted about a year and a half ago that orders were placed in more than one bottle size! Here’s its first outing…
2006 Nicolas Potel, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Les Fuées try to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus colour. So effusive once the cork is popped, it’s like you’re back in the barrel cellar with forward red and black fruit that is softened at the edges with a sweet, faintly brulee’d note – primary but very gorgeous. In the mouth it has lost some of that barrel ‘padding’, but you have good intensity, equally good acidity and a reasonable amount of structure; the tannin is there and whilst velvety, has the merest trace of astringency. Slowly lingering, this is super – it’s perhaps more structured than when last tasted (and ordered!) and I’d recommend that you leave it in the cellar, but the fruit is gorgeous.
Rebuy – Yes
