2003 Nicolas Potel Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Aux Echanges
Nicolas Potel Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Aux Echanges is a gorgeous red Burgundy certain to delight any lover of Pinot Noir. Maison Nicolas Potel was founded by Nicolas Potel in 1997 and is managed today in the spirit of its founder to source and vinify small lots of hand crafted wines from selected appellations throughout Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits. Nicolas Potel's winemaking philosophy is admirable: "to insist on low yields, as little intervention in the vineyards as possible, rigorous selections, and extended skin contact. I strive to remain true to the characteristics of each vineyard, while producing a balanced, complex wine emphasizing fruit and finesse." This first-growth Burgundy received 90-point ratings from both Wine & Spirits and Wine Spectator! The Wine Spectator review was written in April 2006: “A chunky, robust style, with dense tannins underlying the black cherry, chocolate and spice notes. It's concentrated, yet brooding, needing time to come together. Best from 2008 through 2015. 200 cases made.” For us, this is a true wine gem!
Nicolas Potel Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Aux Echanges is deep garnet red in color, medium-full in body, soft and velvety with silky tannins. It offers a beautiful nose and palate of black cherries, raspberries, earth, spice and mineral notes. The wine was aged in French oak barrels. Its elegant finish shows off the depth, length and earthy minerality reserved for great Burgundy.
Enjoy Nicolas Potel Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Aux Echanges over the next 7-8 years with roast pork, grilled salmon, pasta, rich vegetable dishes, and aged cheeses.
