Fruity & Luxurious

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.

An elegant dry and medium-bodied Old World Pinot Noir from Burgundy. Earthy and floral on the nose with ripe red berry, cherry, sweet spice, savoury herb and flinty flavours on the palate.

A nice option for pairing with grilled chicken, poached salmon or pheasant pie.

This product is part of the LCBO Vintages program. It may take approximately 10-14 business days to be delivered.

Press Reviews

91 points

Nicolas Potel’s access to pinot noir vineyards 35, 50, 60 and even 80 years of age makes for fruit and experience that are virtually unparalleld in Bouroogne AOC. Cuvée Réserve offers fine perennial drinking with medium-bodied concentration and texture thanks to high density plantings on limestone and marl. Big (600L) barrels do the yeoman work to solidify and qualify this pinot noir as the real and authentic deal regardless of quantities and négoce hi-jinx. It’s all just fun and games with a gift of Bourgogne at a more than fair price. Drink 2021-2025. Tasted April 2021.

This is a good example of the pure, still youthful Pinot Noir character that typifies a well-made Bourgogne. Fairly deep intense purple colour. Rather spicy, bright, youthful, ripe, plum-crancherry-raspberry nose with some minerally, sandalwood notes. Dry, medium bodied, tangy, youthful, attractive, fresh, fripe, bright, plum-red-cherry flavours with a very gently cedary, nicely structured, faintly grippy, crisp finish. Has 12.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar . When I taste this, all I can think of is coq au vin
