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.

Saint Romain lies in an isolated valley northeast of Auxey-Duresses. This wine is produced from a combination of 4 different plots (Les Poillanges, Aux Bas des Poillanges, La Perrière and Sous le château) all planted in 1957. 

This is a bright, tart, red fruit dominant wine that is so incredibly fresh. It has grainy and grippy tannins that add structure to light and funky flavours. Ever so lightly austere with a mineral, stony quality. 

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

From a high-density 1956 planting of pinot noir, aged in 20% new wood and the rest in used barrels, this is complex and perfumed Saint Romain, especially spicy and stemmy in a good way, adding an impression of freshness and counter-balancing the ripe red berry fruit. The palate is mid-weight, properly firm and structured, with high sapidity and excellent length, and well-integrated, dusty tannins that still need some time to settle in. In the context of the region, I have to say this is an excellent value red Burgundy. I'd cellar for another 2-3 years minimum before enjoying, or hold until the end of the decade without concern. Great complexity and depth. Tasted May 2022.
