Nicolas Potel is an iconic producer in Burgundy. He grew up in a family dedicated entirely to wine; and after gaining some experience internationally, he started his own project in the late 90's.
Founded in 2009, Maison Roche de Bellene offers a complete range of wines, with an emphasis on individual terroirs from vieilles vignes (old vines - 40 years or older) that are farmed responsibly. All of the growers that Nicolas Potel works with are either organic certified or farming according to the principles of lutte raisonée (“sustainable viticulture”). This enables Potel to consistently produce the expressive, terroir-driven style that is his vision.
Rich and expressive Chablis with excellent weight on the palate, a kiss of oak and mouthwatering acidity. The aromatic profile shows a complex structure, offering notes of orchard and stone fruits, accentuated by chalky minerality along with delicate spice and honeysuckle flavours. The acidity adds vigour to the palate and cuts through the density of the wine, keeping the fruit fresh and lifted all while maintaining a soft, pleasing texture. This wine has great ageing potential but may also be drunk young.
The lightly creamy texture of this wine will do well with similarly creamy sauces. Try with rich, buttery lobster or chicken dressed with beurre blanc sauce.
