Nicolas Potel Clos de la Roche 2005 750mL


The expressive and highly aromatic nose remains largely if not completely primary as there is some secondary character evident on the floral and sandalwood-inflected red and dark berry scents. There is equally good complexity to the delicious and attractively textured medium weight plus flavors that possess both good power and excellent persistence on the naturally sweet finale. This is evolving very well and while it could easily be enjoyed now I would be inclined to allow it another 4 to 6 years of cellar time where it should then hold for another 20ish years. In a word, excellent.
