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.

As well as running his own wine property Domaine de Bellene and negociant company Maison Roche de Bellene, the ever resourceful Nicolas Potel has made a speciality out of sourcing parcels of older Burgundy wines from capable producers who have squirrelled away various gems from their best vineyards. Nicolas has got to know almost everybody in Burgundy during his twenty-five years of making wine.

The Collection Bellenum wines have moved only twice in their lives, from the original cellar to Potel's and now to yours!

I'd say they magnificently reflect the reality of Burgundy in that they are very varied, provide a thoroughly useful overview of how different vintages are developing, and include some completely stunning wines that are not Grands Crus, not even Premiers Crus but are simple village wines. - Jancis Robinson.

Fixin (pronounced “Fissin”) is situated in the Côte de Nuits region between Dijon and Gevrey-Chambertin. These wines are quite aromatic, with floral scents (violet, peony), fruits (blackcurrant, Morello cherry, quince), musk and pepper. Often tannic and a little hard in their youth, with age the Fixin acquire a heightened and rounded attack and solid structure. Their fullness is remarkable and their texture delicate.

Press Reviews

The time frame is a deep and precarious one for the appellation but this is the world occupied in négoce free-willingness where Nicolas Potel plies his trade. Lithe as it gets and at first curiously youthful while fixin' to attract a large and willing appellative audience. Truthfully yet fully evolved even while there are indicator lights a-flashing that warn of impending sluggish transitions and dry finishes. Almost absurdly drinkable and gifting Bourgogne pleasure in a state of hold and grace. Admittedly loses its lustre after an hour or so. Drink 2021-2022. Tasted December 2021.
