Domaine de Bellene is the creation of Nicolas Potel – the son of the legendary Gérard Potel of Domaine Pousse d’Or. Potel's name has become synonymous with Burgundian wine and he is known for constantly challenging the borders of traditional winemaking in the region.

The Coteaux Bourguignons 'Cuvée l'Eclos des Abeilles' comes from three magnificent parcels, left without vines for a long time, pre-phylloxera, with a great Terroir potential. These different terroirs are based in three villages, totalling 4 hectares. 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)

About the vintage:  A difficult vintage to say the least, but not one without merit. The region suffered reduced yields from spring frosts and a cool summer, meaning this vintage would have to be won through hard work in the vineyard and in the winery. This is a year of smaller quantities of fresh, refined and thoughtful wines from a full range of climats. A return to a cooler vintage, compared to recent years, will be sure to delight classic Burgundy lovers who favour elegance and finesse.

Press Reviews


91 Points - John Szabo, MS

A fine follow up to the excellent 2020 edition of the same wine, the 2021 delivers significant crunchy fruit and sapidity from young vines (planted in 2014), with minimal, fully-integrated wood flavours, and appealingly crunchy-succulent flavours. Really quite excellent length and depth, too, in the category. For fans of finesse and liveliness.
