Nicolas Potel Pommard Grand Cru Les Fremiers 2005
A tricky grape to grow, Pinot Noir makes some of the best wines in the world. The wine is lighter in color than Cabernet or Merlot with relatively high alcohol, medium-to-high acidity, and medium-to-low tannin. Its flavors and aromas can be very fruity or earthy and woodsy, depending on how it is grown. It is rarely blended with other grapes.
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)
