2016 Côte de Nuits-Villages Vieilles Vignes, Domaine de Bellene

Nicolas sees his (increasing) holdings in the Côte de Nuits-Villages as the future of his domaine, where prices aren’t as high. And his faith was rewarded in 2016, as his crop was unaffected by bad weather. The wine is juicy and pure, with mineral freshness and pleasant grip. There’s lots of energy and depth, and a long, pure finish.

2016 Côte de Nuits-Villages Vieilles Vignes, Domaine de Bellene
Nicolas Potel

In 2005, Nicolas built up his own Estate, Domaine de Bellene, in the Côte de Beaune. Then in 2008 launched his new negociant business called "Maison Roche de Bellene" which also includes a range of very rare older vintages, under the name "Collection Bellenum". These wines, dating back to 1959 are the result of a very strict selection of old vintages exceptionally released from the wine cellars of some of the most famous producers of Burgundy.
