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.

Clos des Chenes is one of Volnay's most notable premier cru vineyards, located on the midslope of the Côte d'Or escarpment. The wines of this cru are some of Volnay's best, exhibiting bright fruit characters along with fine tannins, good acidity, and plenty of elegance.

A forward, sweetly fruited nose of blackberries and cherry, on the palate lots of blackcurrant fruit and notes of dried red berries interwoven with cedar spicing. Very attractive wine with sumptuous fruit and fine tannins.

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

There is a tender beauty to this Volnay, the fruit of 50 year-old vines in the Clos des Chênes premier cru. The nose is an arresting perfume of violets, lavender, perfectly ripe red berries, and sweet, woody herbs, while the palate is a delicate interplay of cherries, strawberries, raspberries, and subtle spice. It feels silky and refined, with fine-grained tannins and firm acids. The finish reverberates softly. It is drinking well now and will continue to do so for the rest of this decade.
