Another great Bourgogne Rouge from Potel. The year has pushed the fruit profile from red to blue and black fruits with a fleck of spice and on-palette nerve coming into play from judicious use of whole bunch in the wine. It's reasonably brooding right now but the play and light and shade are there so a little open time allows the florals and spice to really exerts a classic impression on healthy dark fruit. A remarkable wine within the genre and at the price. MICHAEL, PWS

Sourced from old vines, the average age is around 70 years now. The wine shows uncommon depth of material for its appellation. Richly textured and supple with plenty of darkly fruited and wonderfully appealing character. It becomes a good degree more lively towards the finish and the final wave of fruit is brighter as well. Once again it's a wine of mass appeal and pleasure. It is a big call but for me I think it pips that 2015. My final notes from tasting here is "this is super Bourg" ROSCOE
