Nicolas Potel Gevrey-Chambertin 2010

It’s not often one stumbles across AOC wines from Gevrey-Chambertin in Australia for under $30.  I bought half a dozen on reputation alone.  This unfortunately proved to be an error.  Lightly coloured, this pinot noir opens to simple aromatics of cherry, old wood and a touch of toffee.  On the palate, the wine has a tart mouthfeel, with very high acid, and only echoes of cherry flavour.  Perfectly fine for quaffing, but little more.  Acceptable
