Domaine de Bellene - Coveted Climats
3 bottles per case
Domaine de Bellene is the creation of Nicolas Potel – the son of the legendary Gérard Potel of Domaine Pousse d’Or. Potel is a big name in Burgundian winemaking, and he is known for constantly challenging the borders of winemaking in Burgundy.
About the vintage: The 2020 vintage is absolutely excellent, lauded as 'almost a dream vintage' by top UK wine buyers and something that you should snap up while you can – especially since it’s clear that there’s going to be very little wine coming out of Burgundy next year (and at much higher prices!)
It is abundantly clear that 2020 produced some magnificent wines, with exceptional balance, freshness and full fruit maturity, yet that also remain very Burgundian in style. There is very little not to like.
A case includes 1 bottle of each wine.
1 bottle x Domaine de Bellene Beaune 1er Cru Les Perrières 2020
White | Chardonnay
94 points - Wine Align, John Szabo, MS
Les Perrières is a lovely climat for whites, located at the top of the slope with rocky, thin soils that bring a refreshing crisp character to the wines. Barrel fermented and aged on it's lees for up to 14 months, expect a lush wine with an overlay of spice and cream and a rich, luxuriant texture. Not to worry, the bright lemony fruit and mineral, saline notes are still there!
1 bottle x Domaine de Bellene Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Chaignots 2020
Red | Pinot Noir
95 points - Wine Align, John Szabo, MS
Aux Chaignots is a Premier Cru vineyard in the northern part of the Nuits-Saint-Georges commune of Burgundy. The vineyard, on the midslope of the Cote d'Or, makes a structured, elegant wine with earthy overtones.
Exotic aromas of smoked meat, dark wild berries, baking chocolate and spices introduces a medium to full-bodied wine with tangy acids, satiny structuring tannins and a deep core of sapid, pungently spicy fruit. This is a definite success.
1 bottle x Domaine de Bellene Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots 2020
Red | Pinot Noir
96 points - Wine Align, Michael Godel
Les Suchots has a magic nose that is spiced yet very fresh. It has aromas of sandalwood, black raspberries and hoisin sauce. The supple and soft tannins round the palate, that finish with a robust and spiky aftertaste.
Les Suchots plot, that covers 21.5 acres, was planted in 1937 in the heart of Les Suchots, and lies very next to La Romanée and Saint Vivant.
