"This blend from five Beaune Premier Crus was made to celebrate the Potel family's 50 years in wine. It is a richly structured, beautiful wine with its dark tannins and black fruit showing so well. Concentrated from the low yielding old vines, the wine is packed with fruits and acidity that are developing slowly. Drink from 2020."

"(20% new oak, vs 33% for the Grèves; a blend of Pertuisots, Montée Rouge, Les Bressandes, Clos du Roi and Réversées; an homage to Nicolas Potel\'s late father Gérard, who started his winemaking career in 1964): Medium red. Pungent peppery, high-toned lift to the aromas of red berries and Cuban cigar tobacco; this smells like a Montecristo torpedo. Broad and silky in texture but extremely dry and imploded today, not showing the juiciness or fresh fruit quality of the Grèves. The tannins are more granular, initially drying the tongue, but aeration brought more dimension and suppleness and the tannins softened. This deep Beaune wine expanded noticeably with air, showing more sweetness to its fruit and spice flavors, as well as subtle persistence. Lay this one down for at least a few years."
