Based in Beaune, Nicolas Potel runs a successful négociant, a winery, his own grape-growing operation, and is widely respected for his unrivalled local network, savvy salesmanship, and winemaking genius. He is also the son of the late Gérard Potel, an iconoclastic winemaker from Volnay. All the wines in this offer came from Nicolas' vineyards, that he made and bottled under the Domaine de Bellene label – Bellene being a pre-Medieval name for Beaune, where Nicolas is based. The wines from this collection is fine, firm, and totally irresistible.
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.
Now, the time is yours to journey through the most original expressions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from some of Burgundy's finest climats – the region's most exceptional vineyard sites.
