Domaine de Bellene is the creation of Nicolas Potel – the son of the legendary Gérard Potel of Domaine Pousse d’Or. Potel's name has become synonymous with Burgundian wine and he is known for constantly challenging the borders of traditional winemaking in the region.

A special blend of five premier cru sites in Beaune, dedicated to the memory of Nicolas Potel’s mother. This cuvée was originally introduced in 2014, as Cuvée du Cinquantenaire, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Nicolas’s father, the revered Gérard Potel, who started at Domaine de la Pousse d’Or in 1964. It’s also a tribute to the quality of Beaune wines, showing the beautiful balance of opulence, finesse and length that characterize the best terroirs of this appellation at the epicentre of the Côte d’Or. Expect to find ripe and nicely layered aromas & flavours of black cherry, earth, violet and a hint of lavender. 

 Try this versatile wine with all kinds of game meats - think duck, rabbit or venison.

About the Winery

Groupe Bellene

Led by Nicolas Potel in Beaune, Groupe Bellene is composed of the négociant arm Maison Roche de Bellene, the winery arm Domaine de Bellene, and a special back-vintage series under the Collection Bellenum label. 

  • Maison Roche de Bellene offers a complete range of wines, with an emphasis on individual terroirs from old vines of more than 40 years. All of the growers that Nicolas works with are either organic certified or sustainably farmed.
  • Domaine de Bellene represents the wines that are produced and bottled from Nicolas Potel's private vineyard holdings. 
  • Collection Bellenum is a back vintage series that Nicolas Potel sourced from his friends in the region, offering a magnificent selection of bottled history. The wines have moved only twice in their lives, from the original cellar to Potel's and now to yours!

Nicolas Potel grew up at Volnay's Domaine Pousse d'Or, where his father worked. He trained abroad and returned home in 1996 to build a négociant business and started Maison Nicolas Potel, where he sourced grapes from good parcels, often working with the growers to improve the quality. By 2002, he was making 120 wines from 50 different appellations, and the rest is history!

Press Reviews

96 Points - Anna Lee C. Iijima

Crushed stone and raspberry preserves meld into a core of bright red cherry in this vital, piercing wine. Sourced from five premier-cru sites in Beaune, the complex wine offsets bristling red fruit against layers of earth, mineral and blossom. Guard until 2024 at least and drink through 2035.
