Nicolas Potel Volnay Champans Premiere Cru 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit is sorted as it arrives and allowed to macerate under temperature control for several days before fermentation begins naturally, also under thermoregulation, with daily pumping over. The vatting lasts 15 to 20 days before a light pressing. The musts are allowed to settle for a minimum of two weeks to permit removal of the gross lees. The wine is then transferred to barrel by gravity. Nicolas uses on average 20% new oak, 50% second use. As the cellar is cold, the maturation is long, from 16 to 18 months. The wines remain on their lees until the following harvest. It is important to note that even the ones purchased are brought to Nuits still on their lees. The lunar cycle is closely followed when working the cuvées, in order to retain a maximum of aromas. Food Match: Veal, roasts, pheasant, lamb, fowl, duck.

Had this a while back so cannot remember the specifics but then that said that must be an indivcation on the wine too. Don't remember going wow about it, fairly standard Pinot considering its 1er Cru.
