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.

This is one of the oldest vines of Domaine de Bellene. Situated in the village of Pommard, the vineyards were planted in 1928 and the plot was bought by Nicolas Potel's parents in 1978. This plot always produces well balanced wines, and it has been farmed organically since 1992.

This wine is rich in colour and shows a complex aromatic palette and a beautiful structure. The nose is so attractive: the strawberry, raspberry and cranberry fruit have an earthy-twiggy depth, with a hint of cinnamon spice too. The tannins are fine and silky, and the lively acidity infuses the fruit on the palate with a pleasant juiciness.

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.

Never ignore high density planting and 70 year-old vines when it comes to Bourgogne. Nicolas Potel cares deeply about his old vines cuvée, as if on a mission from God, to celebrate the house from a pinot noir aptly named, likely in reference to small stone chapels dotting the Côte d’Or. If labelled as a ubiquitous AOC Bourgogne that is to be looked past and beyond because this fruit means serious and higher caste business. Usually aged six months in wood and the same amount of time in bottle, coming out concentrated and densely layered, compacted and formidable, far more impressive than what it could have settled to be. Hard not feel the excitement of 2020 acids, the rolling thunder of tannins and the depth all parts conspire to create. Quite the wow factor, weather extreme vintage be damned and price to boot. Drink 2023-2027. Tasted May 2022.
