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.
Queue the rarity alert! Only 5% of the production from the Côte de Nuits Villages is white wine so this is a real treat. Expect exotic fruits notes with a hint of stone fruit and toasted nuts. This wine is well balanced between the acidity and the structure - it is rich, pleasant and concentrated. A long finish lingers with hints of honey and fresh mint.
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.
