Earthy & Complex

Nicolas Potel is an iconic producer in Burgundy. He grew up in a family dedicated entirely to wine; and after gaining some experience internationally, he started his own project in the late 90's.

From the lesser known region of Morey Saint Denis (sandwiched in-between Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny), this beautiful 1er cru is located just below the Clos de Lambray, whose clay and limestone originated in the Jurassic period. Named for the once low walls that surrounded this vineyard, this wine leaps out of the glass with high-pitched notes of cassis, deep red cherry and blueberry. Expect spice, licorice and a touch of earthiness on the palate as this wine continues to develop.

Pair this delicious and delicate wine with roast beef, veal, game birds, or rabbit. Soft cheeses such as camembert and brie also pair beautifully. 

This product is part of the LCBO April Classics Catalogue. It will take approximately 3-4 weeks to be delivered from its release date.

Clos Sorbé is a Morey Saint Denis premier cru named for the low walls that once surrounded the vineyard. The gradual slope facing east is located in the middle of the village with a soil mix of chalky marl and fragmented white limestone stones coming up from the sub-strata. Delivers the finesse and shadowy Morey smoulder for a grippy pinot noir, sneaky like its maker, confident and destined to be there for the long term. Nicolas Potel has held on to this 2016 and we thank him for that, from the low-yielding (with thanks to springs frosts and rains) yet powerful vintage (because of a very hot summer). The wine is still in infancy, tough juddering from a mechanical equine, a mudder that will find its stride just as it comes out of the last turn. On track for a mid to late decade run. Drink 2024-2029.
