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.

Vineyards 45-55 years of age north and south on either side of the Nuits-Saint-Georges village. On the north side they sit adjacent to Vosne-Romanée, in delivery of the heft, power and depth, while southerly sites at Prémeaux Prissey tend to and lend tension release moments of delicasse. Overall the mid-weight sensibility is heightened and tends to be grippier in 2020 though the fruit is in control and seems equipped to handle the onslaught of acidity and tannin. Can’t help but show the minty evergreen and intensity of the vintage but this is a well balanced NSG machine. Drink 2023-2028. Tasted May 2022.
