Fruity & Earthy

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.

A slightly fresher nose offers up decidedly floral-infused aromas of spice, the sauvage and black cherry aromas. Once again, the medium weight flavours are not particularly concentrated, but they are reasonably refined in the context of what is typical for the appellation, all wrapped in serious if slightly rustic finale.

The cuvée of Nuits-Saint-Georges-Village, which has been part of Domaine de Bellene since 2009, comes from four different 'climats'.

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.

This is a lovely, dense and rich Nuits-Saint-Georges with genuine old vine vinosity and breadth, from vines averaged 70 years old. Length and complexity are terrific, and I love the meaty, rusty iron, earth-forward profile, well beyond dark cherry fruit, in the typical Nuits idiom. The finish reverberates on and on. It's surprisingly delicious now, with tannins broad and abundant but ripe and supple, though of course several more years in the cellar, 3-5 at least are recommended, or hold comfortably into the '30s for a fully mature experience. Quite sharp value, all things considered. Tasted May 2021.
