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.
Aux Chaignots is a Premier Cru vineyard in the northern part of the Nuits-Saint-Georges commune of Burgundy. The vineyard, on the midslope of the Cote d'Or, makes a structured, elegant wine with earthy overtones.
Exotic aromas of smoked meat, dark wild berries, baking chocolate and spices introduces a medium to full-bodied wine with tangy acids, satiny structuring tannins and a deep core of sapid, pungently spicy fruit. This is a definite success.
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.
