Nicolas Potel first started his negotiant business back 1996 under his name and created a name for himself among drinkers who look for great value Burgundies. He developed an extensive sourcing network of high quality grapes and the skills to produce fantastic Burgundies at excellent price tags. Due to financial hardship in 2004, he sold his business but stayed with the company until he set up a new negotiant business himself under the name Roche de Bellene in 2009. Some of his pre-Roche de Bellene productions still lie in the cellar and we are thrilled to explore some of these library stock, direct from the Maison Nicolas Potel cellar which remain unmoved from vilification to now, and will be labelled after ordering.
We would like the highlight the following which are able to order in loose and also more choices in original cases are available on order –

HK$650 per bottle
Nicolas Potel Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2006 HK$1,650 per Mag 91-94pts Stephen Tanzer Deep red. Wild, complex nose melds raspberry, leather and game. Silky and round but with lively mineral pungency giving definition and grip to the flavors of raspberry and gibier Finishes with substantial tannic power, a subtle saline character and superb length. This is all "real" Charmes, notes Potel, who told me that he made 100 barrels of grand cru red wine in 2006.
