Burgundy is the utmost example of how magic the combination of terroir and the winemaker's hand can be. The 2018 vintage is starting to be considered one of the greatest vintages of recent history in the region, with some wine critics and producers comparing it to the legendary 1947. This is 'the selection' to have nearby, to enrich your cellar and make your palate happy after a few years of promising evolution in the bottle.

This mixed case includes two bottles of each wine.

Domaine de Bellene Meursault Les Forges 2018. 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.

Domaine de Bellene Les Suchots 1er Cru Vosne-Romanée 2018. Les Suchots has a magic nose that is spiced yet very fresh. It has aromas of sandalwood, black raspberries and hoisin sauce. The supple and soft tannins round the palate, that finish with a robust and spiky aftertaste.

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.
