Domaine de Bellene L'Eclos des Abeilles Coteaux Bourguignons 2019. 91 points by Wine Align. Released for the first time in 2018, this is a very ambitious white Burgundy from young, densely planted vineyards in Nuits-St-Georges and Saint Romain. Made without any added sulphur, it's the latest in a series of brilliant generic whites from Nicolas Potel, with chiselled, breezy flavours and a saline bite, (Tim Atkin, MW)

Domaine de Bellene Santenay Les Charmes Dessus 2019. 94 points by Wine Align. Nicolas Potel has a real talent for producing super white wines in so-called lesser terroirs, such as this Santenay lieu-dit, using larger oak barrels to complement rather than dominate the fruit. It's oatmealy, sappy and fresh, with notes of beeswax, citrus peel and white flowers, (Tim Atkin, MW).

Domaine de Bellene Maison Dieu Vieilles Vignes Bourgogne 2019. 91 points by Wine Align. Situated in the village of Pommard, the vineyards were planted in 1928 and the plot was bought by Nicolas Potel's parents in 1978. This plot always produces well balanced wines, and it has been farmed organically since 1992. This wine is rich in colour and shows a complex aromatic palette and a beautiful structure. The nose is so attractive: the strawberry, raspberry and cranberry fruit have an earthy-twiggy depth, with a hint of cinnamon spice too. The tannins are fine and silky, and the lively acidity infuses the fruit on the palate with a pleasant juiciness. 

Domaine de Bellene Savigny-lès-Beaune Villages Vieilles Vignes 2019. 93 points by Wine Align. The Savigny-les-Beaune made from Pinot Noir is a wonderfully harmonious with 25% new oak to support the wine. Fine, with a discrete minerality, it is also intense and dense. It is made from three plots in Savigny-lès-Beaune: Les Vermots, Aux Champs Pruniers et Les Planchots.

Domaine de Bellene Nuits-Saint-Georges Villages Vieilles Vignes 2019. 94 points by Wine Align. The cuvée of Nuits-Saint-Georges-Village, which has been part of Domaine de Bellene since 2009, comes from four different 'climats'. A slightly fresher nose offers up decidedly floral-infused aromas of spice, the sauvage and black cherry aromas. Once again, the medium weight flavours are not particularly concentrated, but they are reasonably refined in the context of what is typical for the appellation, all wrapped in serious if slightly rustic finale.

Domaine de Bellene Beaune Villages Blanche Fleur 2019. 94 points by Wine Align. A generous expression of village level Beaune from the Blanches Fleurs lieu-dit located at the northern border of Beaune close to Savigny les Beaune. Featuring a great deal of power and finesse, this lightly smoky pinot noir is bursting at the seams with black cherry, pomegranate and sweet red pepper. Pink peppercorn and rare meat play a supporting role in the flavour make-up of this engrossing and youthful pinot noir. Notes of rosebud coyly linger on the finish of excellent length (Sara d'Amato).

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

Wine Align

Domaine de Bellene L'Eclos des Abeilles Coteaux Bourguignons 2019 - 91 points by Sara d'Amato

Richer than expected, this Coteaux Bourguignons expresses the riper character of this vintage but without overt tropical notes. More peach than mango on the palate with a fine oak dusting. Lightly buttery with vibrancy to balance and a long finish. Recommended Tasted May 2021.

Domaine de Bellene Santenay Les Charmes Dessus 2019 - 94 points by David Lawrason

This is a single vineyard, but not 1er Cru site called Les Charmes Dessus. It is very fine, rich and elegant with a classic, complex and almost custardy nose that involves hazelnut, yellow apple, light toast and wood smoke - all very well bound together. Quite expansive and broad with fine acidity, minerality and depth. Hazelnut, lemon custard and minerality on the finish. The length is excellent. Tasted May 2021

Domaine de Bellene Maison Dieu Vieilles Vignes Bourgogne 2019 - 91 points by Sara d'Amato

This Bourgogne Côtes d'Or takes advantage of 70-year old plantings on favorable aspects that lend a notable salinity and mineral character to the wine as well as a pitch-perfect level of ripeness. Cleanly made with more complexity than expected. The finish is very long and although youthful, it is drinking very well now. Tasted May 2021.

Domaine de Bellene Savigny-lès-Beaune Villages Vieilles Vignes 2019 - 93 points by Sara d'Amato

In a vintage defined by climate change, 2019 started out unseasonably cool and finished with record high temperatures. Yet, Domaine Bellene managed to skirt the worse consequences and ensured that the wines showed the very best of the vintage. Notes of iron and salt, crunchy mineral and highly perfumed red fruit. Elegant and effortlessly drinkable yet with a simmering vein of acidity and just the right amount of grip. Showcasing the mouth-filling nature of Savigny-les-Beaune without heaviness. Tasted May 2021.

Domaine de Bellene Nuits-Saint-Georges Villages Vieilles Vignes 2019 - 94 points by John Szabo, MS

This is a lovely, dense and rich Nuits-Saint-Georges with genuine old vine vinosity and breadth, from vines averaged 70 years old. Length and complexity are terrific, and I love the meaty, rusty iron, earth-forward profile, well beyond dark cherry fruit, in the typical Nuits idiom. The finish reverberates on and on. It's surprisingly delicious now, with tannins broad and abundant but ripe and supple, though of course several more years in the cellar, 3-5 at least are recommended, or hold comfortably into the '30s for a fully mature experience. Quite sharp value, all things considered. Tasted May 2021.

Domaine de Bellene Beaune Villages Blanche Fleur 2019 - 94 points by Sara d'Amato

A generous expression of village level Beaune from the Blanches Fleurs lieu-dit located at the northern border of Beaune close to Savigny les Beaune. Featuring a great deal of power and finesse, this lightly smoky pinot noir is bursting at the seams with black cherry, pomegranate and sweet red pepper. Pink peppercorn and rare meat play a supporting role in the flavour make-up of this engrossing and youthful pinot noir. Notes of rosebud coyly linger on the finish of excellent length. Best 2022-2025. Tasted May 2021.
