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.

Jean Ferté was the person who persuaded Nicolas Potel's parents to move to Burgundy, so it's fitting that there should be a wine named after him. There are two parcels blended for this special cuvee: Les Peuillets, a plot planted in 1993 that covers 0.29 hectares and Les Hauts Jarrons, a plot of 47 hectares planted with vines from 1962 and 1975.

Aromas of blackcurrant, cherry and raspberry explode from the glass. Sweet, tangy, savoury and autumnal with notes of aromatic spices and forest floor. Fermented with 50% whole bunches and aged in 10% new wood. 

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.
