Nicolas Potel "Clos de Vougeot" Grand Cru 2006
This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
100% Pinot Noir. Along with Bordeaux and Champagne, Burgundy is one of the most well known vineyards in France. As well as climate and soil diversity, two exceptional varietals exist: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, from which the greatest red and white Bourgogne wines are created. Maison Nicolas Potel has built its international reputation by making wines from the most beautiful lands of the region. Their Villages, Premiers Crus, and Grands Crus are famous and recommended all over the world since they reveal the purity of grapes, their authentic appellations, and native lands. "My philosophy towards winemaking is 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." (Potel, Nicolas)
