We've always stuck with these guys for a number of reasons but mostly because absolutely everything they produce is excellent. Let us read more about the giants of Burgundy that are Maison Potel.
Nicolas Potel decided to set up his own wine négociant business after the death of his father in 1996 and the subsequent sale of Domaine Pousse d`Or, which his father had been managing.
The Nicolas Potel label became an excellent source of predominantly red wines, from Bourgogne Rouge to the Grands Crus of the Cote de Nuits. His hallmark has been to make wines which respect both their vineyard provenance and the style of the vintage while remaining attractively priced.

Intensely fruity with Morello cherries and black fruit such as blackcurrant and blackberry. Fantastic on the nose which translates perfectly into the palate with a beautifully crafted style all round. Fantastic with casseroles, fine beef cuts and hard cheeses.
Not often you find a grand cru at that price let alone one from Burgundy! Cheers!
