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.

Hailing from the Volnay lieu-dit adjacent to Pommard's Le Poisot. Mingling dark cherries and berries with hints of baking chocolate and loamy soil, this Volnay is medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety, with succulent acids and powdery structuring tannins cloaked in a generous core of fruit. This is an elegant, charming Volnay that will offer a broad drinking window.

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.

A notably ripe and forward vintage from Domaine de Bellene's 2020 Volnay Les grands Poisots, showing slightly muddled fruit, dark and fleshy, also a sheen of new wood spice, vanilla (25% new wood). The palate is fullish and fleshy, densely packed and thickly structured, with lots of extract to report. Overall length, depth and complexity are moderate for the time being; this clearly needs more time in bottle, though will likely remain a more four-square example of Volnay rather than a delicate and perfumed wine. Think power over finesse. Tasted May 2022.
