Spiced & Silky

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 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.

Les Suchots plot, that covers 21.5 acres, was planted in 1937 in the heart of Les Suchots, and lies very next to La Romanée and Saint Vivant.

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.

Well this is what every pinot lover wants from pinot - elegance, exuberance, perfect pitch. The nose is very generous, a perfumed quilt of so-fine red cherry, cinnamon, fresh twigs, herbs and spices. With burning leaves and earthy notes as well. It is medium weight, almost ethereal, satiny and exquisitely textured, presenting itself with great purity and alarcity. The length is outstanding. Best 2023 to 2030+. Tasted May 2021

A classically supple and elegant, billowing Vosne here from the Suchots 1er cru, the largest in Vosne bordered to the north by the Clos St. Denis grand cru, and the Romanée-Saint Vivant and Richebourg GCs to the south, so in a very fine neighborhood to be sure. Vines planted in 1937 are by now quite ancient, low yielding and in perfect harmony with their physical environs, yielding exceptional wines of tremendous depth and concentration. I love the flowing tannins and succulent, mouth filling dark fruit, punctuated by a seam of iron and earth flavours. It's naturally a long way from prime enjoyment, a solid 6-8 years I'd say before it will begin to give its best. But it will be worth the wait. Tasted May 2021.
