BOURGOGNE

BOURGOGNE
 

Bourgogne, also called Burgundy, same as Bordeaux, is the soul of French wine. Viticulture in Burgundy can traced back to 2nd century. The region runs from Chablis in the north, then Côte d'Or, to Mâcon in the south. Côte d'Or are the soul of Bourgogne wines, splitting into Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. The majority of red wine production in the Côte d'Or is the Pinot noir grape, while white wines are the chardonnay grape.
 
Bourgogne is terroir-oriented region in France. Opposed to Bordeaux, Bourgogne classifications are geographically-focused. A specific vineyard or region will bear a given classification, regardless of the wine's producer. The main levels in the Bourgogne classifications, in descending order of quality, are: Grand crus, Premier crus, village appellations, and finally regional appellations

About Nicolas Potel

LEGENDARY WINEMAKER IN BURGUNDY


 
Nicolas Potel grows up at the Domaine de la Pousse d’Or in Volnay where his father is the operations manager. The young Nicolas is meant to succeed his father in this position. Yet Gérard Potel’s early death prompts the owners of the Domaine to sell the vineyard. Therefore, Nicolas Potel is left with nothing in 1997. Due to the solidarity of numerous Burgundian winemakers who offer Potel grapes and wines for the development of his own wine trading house, he can found the Maison Nicolas Potel in the spring of 1998.

Although the wines are produced from purchased grapes and wines, Potel creates the unique style of his wines by means of his old fashioned cellaring technologies: spontaneous fermentation, minimal additions of sulphur, gentle ageing in a Burgundian pièce (228 litre cask). Hence the trading house makes a name for itself for full-bodied, round wines from the best Côte d’Or vineyards.

Already in 1999 something over 80 cuvées were produced, for 2001 it was over 100 and for 2002 there are around 120 cuvées in preparation from 50 appellations – and that’s only from the Côte d’Or – Nicolas is also active in Beaujolais. 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. Production today is around 300,000 bottles per year, and even Nicolas Potel left his company in 2008, Maison Nicolas Potel still keeps its high standard and quality.
