1998 Nicolas Potel, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Les Serpentières
The last bottle from a six-pack – and what a great buy they were. Musky red strawberry and a hint of raspberry – aromatically involving – just lovely. The palate has none of the astringency of some from the vintage, more a melted whole of soft texture and sweet-acid balance. Plenty of very fine silt in the bottom of this bottle, but the cloudiness of the last glass did nothing to spoil the flavours and aromas. A winner.
Rebuy – Yes

    What a marvellous cote de Beaune vintage this is turning out to be, particularly in Beaune itself and Savigny.
