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. 

Meursault Les Forges of Domaine de Bellene is a chardonnay of great class and finesse that comes from 50-year-old vineyards located in the extraordinary Côte de Beaune terroir. The aromatic bouquet stands out for the enveloping notes of honey and vanilla. On the palate it is mineral yet rich with a soft and extremely elegant and slightly chalky finish.

About the vintage: A difficult vintage to say the least, but not without merit. The region suffered reduced yields from spring frosts and a cooler summer, meaning this vintage would have to be won through hard work in the vineyard and in the winery. This is a year of smaller quantities of fresh, refined and thoughtful wines from a full range of climats. A return to a cooler vintage compared to recent years will delight classic Burgundies lovers who favour elegance and finesse. 

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


95 Points - David Lawrason

This is a classic Meursault in so many ways. First, the nose is all about layers of complexity with pear flan, hazelnut, light toast and fine brown cinnamon/nutmeg spice. It is full bodied, rich and fleshy but the acid core is terrific and well integrated. And despite all the largesse it maintains a sense of delicacy and minerality. This is so well focused and the length is outstanding
