TASTING NOTES

An east to south facing vineyard with deep calcerous soils, this wine has a refined mineral character which is typical of this vineyard. The 2016 has an intense lime and grapefruit flavour leading to a long and persistent finish. It could do with a little bit more ageing.
Drink from 2017

TASTING NOTES

A very elegant wine with a real sense of direction and purpose, it reveals a subtle bouquet of stone fruits and delicate citrus characters while the palate is refreshing and pure with soft white peach and green apple fruits. A little restrained at first, this wine has plenty of depth and the potential for longer ageing.

TASTING NOTES

The Bourgogne Blanc, which had completed its malo by springtime, is already in bottle and offers good fruit weight and mid-palate density but plenty of freshness too. The nose is pure and floral and the wine bounds along energetically, with a crisp, well-defined finish suggesting versatility, equally at home on its own as with simple foods. Drink from 2014.

Nicolas Potel took his first steps as a winemaker at Domaine de La Pousse d’Or in Volnay which was managed by his father Gérard Potel. Following his father’s death, Nicolas established his own négociant company and in a relatively short time he established himself as one of the leading and most innovative winemakers in Burgundy.

We have followed Nicolas’ work for many years and are delighted now to introduce a few wines from his Domaine de Bellene. Located in Beaune and established in 2005, Domaine de Bellene has vineyards in Santenay, Saint-Romain, Volnay, Nuits-Saint-Georges and Vosne-Romanée. Most of his vines are between 50 and 100 years old and are grown using biodynamic methods. Winemaking is as natural as possible with no added yeasts or sugar.

Maison Roche de Bellene was founded in 2008 and is the négociant arm of Nicolas’ Domaine de Bellene. Nicolas sources grapes from trusted growers he has known for years and has an enviable range of wines from some of the finest vineyards in the Côte d’Or. He describes Maison Roche de Bellene as the only “haute couture” négociant in Burgundy.
