Earthy & Complex

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.

Chambolle takes its name from the bubbling appearance of the "Grône" stream. In 1878 the name of its best cru, Musigny, was appended to the village name. This A.O.C. is for red wine only and covers a total area of 182 hectares.

Pure aromas of violets, dark red cherries, raspberries and earthy mushrooms, coupled with a velvety elegance, supple mid-palate, an abundance of black and red berry, and finesse and power through a long and fine-grained finish.

This product is part of the LCBO October Classics Catalogue. It will take approximately 3-4 weeks to be delivered from its release date.

About the Winery

Groupe Bellene

Groupe Bellene is composed of the négociant “Maison Roche de Bellene” and the winery “Domaine de Bellene” both located in Beaune. Nicolas Potel grew up at the Volnay Domaine Pousse d'Or, where his father, Gérard, had worked since 1964.

Nicolas trained abroad and returned home in 1996, hoping to build a négociant business and that was the start of Maison Nicolas Potel. Potel began sourcing grapes from good parcels, often working with the growers to improve quality. By 2002, he was making 120 wines from 50 different appellations.

Today he runs Maison Roche de Bellene, a micro-négoce that 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 works with are either organic certified or farming according to the principles of lutte raisonée (sustainable viticulture). This enables Nicolas to consistently produce the expressive, terroir-driven style that is his vision. In addition he owns his own vineyards and bottles these wines under the label Domaine de Bellene. You can also find some special back vintage offerings that Nicolas has sourced from his friends in region, this is labelled under Collection Bellenum.

Press Reviews

96 Points - John Szabo

From 50 year old vines in ultra-high density planting (11,000 vines/hectare, according to Nicolas Potel, the nose is exceptionally pretty, ripe but fresh, exuding red berry-cherry fruit in a sophisticated and refined fashion. I love the touch of licorice, the gentle leafy-stemminess, the delicate wood spice, and the overall complexity. The palate is saturated with flavour - this is a genuine mouthful, dripping with ripe fruit but also contained by abundant, ripe acids. Tannins are ultra-fine but structured and the length is superb. Top notch; Best after 2027. Tasted September 2019.

95 Points - Michael Godel

Les Chabiots is expressed in the highest of tones for Chambolle and while the vintage was generous, easy and warm you should not be fooled into thinking that a dance of movement or development will initiate or ignite any time soon. Greatest of fine tannins and intensity of its own and singular commentary make for a very special wine. Drink 2022-2036. Tasted September 2019.
