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. 

Aux Chaignots is a Premier Cru vineyard in the northern part of the Nuits-Saint-Georges commune of Burgundy. Situated on limestone soils, the 0.14-hectare vineyard, on the midslope of the Cote d'Or, makes a structured, elegant wine with earthy overtones.

A floral bouquet greets this wine swiftly followed by dark wild berries, notes of cocoa and sweet spices. A bit more weight to this wine on the palate with tangy acids and suave tannins that meet a deep core of sapid, pungently spiced fruit. Finishes with a lovely and lifted floral finish.

About the vintage: A difficult vintage to say the least, but not 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


94 Points - David Lawrason

This sturdy, fairly dense NSG shows a nicely ripe blackcurrant/cherry nose with violet perfume and considerable oak toast and spice. It is medium-full bodied in the pinot realm with very firm acid-tannin structure. Excellent flavour intensity and length. I would age this two or three years to let the tannins loosen.
