Fruity & Luxurious

Nicolas Potel is an iconic producer in Burgundy. He grew up in a family dedicated entirely to wine; and after gaining some experience internationally, he started his own project in the late 90's.

Founded in 2009, Maison Roche de Bellene offers a complete range of wines, with an emphasis on individual terroirs from vieilles vignes (old vines - 40 years or older) that are farmed responsibly. All of the growers that Nicolas Potel works with are either organic certified or farming according to the principles of lutte raisonée (“sustainable viticulture”). This enables Potel to consistently produce the expressive, terroir-driven style that is his vision.

An elegant dry and medium-bodied Old World Pinot Noir from Burgundy. Earthy and floral on the nose with ripe red berry, cherry, sweet spice, savoury herb and flinty flavours on the palate.

A nice option for pairing with grilled chicken, poached salmon or pheasant pie.

This product is part of the LCBO Vintages program. It may take approximately 10-14 business days to be delivered.

About the Winery

Groupe Bellene

Groupe Bellene is composed of the négociant “Maison Roche de Bellene” and the winery “Domaine de Bellene” both located in Beaune. Nicolas Potel grew up at the Volnay Domaine Pousse d'Or, where his father, Gérard, had worked since 1964.

Nicolas trained abroad and returned home in 1996, hoping to build a négociant business and that was the start of Maison Nicolas Potel. Potel began sourcing grapes from good parcels, often working with the growers to improve quality. By 2002, he was making 120 wines from 50 different appellations.

Today he runs Maison Roche de Bellene, a micro-négoce that offers a complete range of wines, with an emphasis on individual terroirs from vieilles vignes (old vines - 40 years or older) that are farmed responsibly. All of the growers that Nicolas works with are either organic certified or farming according to the principles of lutte raisonée (sustainable viticulture). This enables Nicolas to consistently produce the expressive, terroir-driven style that is his vision. In addition he owns his own vineyards and bottles these wines under the label Domaine de Bellene. You can also find some special back vintage offerings that Nicolas has sourced from his friends in region, this is labelled under Collection Bellenum.

Press Reviews

Nicolas Potel’s access to pinot noir vineyards 35, 50, 60 and even 80 years of age makes for fruit and experience that are virtually unparalleld in Bouroogne AOC. Cuvée Réserve offers fine perennial drinking with medium-bodied concentration and texture thanks to high density plantings on limestone and marl. Big (600L) barrels do the yeoman work to solidify and qualify this pinot noir as the real and authentic deal regardless of quantities and négoce hi-jinx. It’s all just fun and games with a gift of Bourgogne at a more than fair price. Drink 2021-2025. Tasted April 2021.
