Natalie's Score: 89/100
This Nicolas Potel wine is medium-bodied, and smooth: Classic Old World pinot noir that offers aromas and flavours of tart cherries, earth and some herbal notes. Good acidity for food. Awesome price for Burgundy, especially for the quality designation of AC. Finishes with lovely spice and coffee notes. Pair with smoke salmon. There are 4,620 hectares planted for this Pinot Noir and the vines are 35 to 70 years old. They're planted at a density of 10,000 per hectare with a southwest exposure in clay and limestone soils at 234 metres above sea level. The grapes were picked by hand with fermentation via native yeast and 100% malolactic fermentation, no fining. Pair with game dishes.
Pinot Noir food pairings: veal scaloppini with a mushroom sauce, beef bourguignon, pork tenderloin, mushroom and truffle dishes, coq au vin.

|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Pale garnet colour. So many intricate and and delicate aromas. Cherry, blackcurrant, raspberry and a touch of wispy marshmallow root. On the palate this is sublimely red fruit forward with bing cherry, heather flower and light whispers of vanilla root. Well integrated and polished. Medium plus acidity and tannins with a medium minus finish. Very unified with a touch of refined stoney minerals. This is a delightfully well balanced and fruity Pinot Noir. Excellent price point. Pair with pork tenderloin and cranberry reduction and soft cheeses.
