Nicolas Potel Clos St. Denis 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"Spruce resin, sage, cassis, and blackberry fill the nose from a Potel 2006 Clos St.-Denis, which comes to the palate with sappy primary fruit intensity and continued herbal pungency. Suggestions of black tea; singed, grilled lamb; and steaming stones convey a dark, brooding aspect reminiscent of a number of other wines in this collection. This finishes with impressive tenacity but also a sense of opacity, which I suspect might in part be engendered by the flavors from new wood. It will be interesting to follow for at least the next 6-8 years...91" WA 12/09
