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.

Les Suchots plot covers 21.5 acres and was planted in 1937 in the heart of the climat. This wine has a magic nose that is spicy and up lifting. Expect to find aromas of sandalwood, black raspberries and hoisin sauce. The supple and pillowy tannins round the palate, that finishes with a robust and spiky aftertaste.

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.  

Press Reviews


97 Points - Michael Godel

As a reminder, “Suchots” originates from “souches,” the name given to the woods before the land was prepared to host and nurture these vines. Les Suchots was first planted in 1937 and makes up approximately six percent of the 220 hectares for Vosne Romanée. The vintage was a challenging one and the resulting wines are of an ilk not seen for the past 25-30 years - yet these matters mean little when wines exist by dint of such consistently high quality. In fact in a wine like this the glory and the status are one, the parts seamless and interchangeable, the tension just an equal and opposite reaction to the grace. Suchots drinks beautifully and will do so for the next 20-25 years - this in the face of dare to pry open grip, restrained power and taut elasticity. It’s harmonious, beautiful, strict but oh so fair. It has our full respect. Drink 2025-2038.
