Domaine de Bellene is the creation of Nicolas Potel – the son of the legendary Gérard Potel of Domaine Pousse d’Or. Potel is a big name in Burgundian winemaking, and he is known for constantly challenging the borders of winemaking in Burgundy.

Les Perrières is a lovely climat for whites, located at the top of the slope with rocky, thin soils that bring a refreshing crisp character to the wines. Barrel fermented and aged on it's lees for up to 14 months, expect a lush wine with an overlay of spice and cream and a rich, luxuriant texture. Not to worry, the bright lemony fruit and mineral, saline notes are still there!

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.

This is a very classy Beaune Premier Cru white from Les Perrières, a vineyard name that comes up time and again in Burgundy, and which references the many limestone quarries in the region. The nose is all ripe white and yellow-fleshed orchard fruit, pears, golden delicious apple and nectarine, with very well managed and integrated wood (45% new barrels), still a year or three away from prime enjoyment. There's considerable depth and structure on offer, as well as genuine density and length. A fine wine, best after 2024, or hold into the early '30s. Tasted May 2022.
