Nicolas Potel is an iconic producer and pioneer in the Burgundy winemaking scene. He grew up in a family dedicated to wine; and after gaining some experience internationally, he started his own project in the late 90's. The Maison Roche de Bellene offers a complete range of carefully cultivated and versatile wines, often made from old vines. All of the Maison wines are made with respect to sustainable and natural farming practices, with as little intervention as necessary to showcase their individual terroirs.

From a .75 ha parcel of land within Nuit-Saint-Georges, this wine's fruit comes from vines aged between 40-54 years, growing upon beds of limestone clay-rich soils. Aromatically, it offers notes of crushed rose petals, violets, tart dark berry fruits, and traces of vanilla. On the palate, it's refreshing with fine-grain tannins that offer a slight blooming sensation leading to a fine and elegant finish. 

A wine as classic as this will be a wonderful partner to a dish like beef wellington. 

About the Winery

Groupe Bellene

Led by Nicolas Potel in Beaune, Groupe Bellene is composed of the négociant arm Maison Roche de Bellene, the winery arm Domaine de Bellene, and a special back-vintage series under the Collection Bellenum label. 

  • Maison Roche de Bellene offers a complete range of wines, with an emphasis on individual terroirs from old vines of more than 40 years. All of the growers that Nicolas works with are either organic certified or sustainably farmed.
  • Domaine de Bellene represents the wines that are produced and bottled from Nicolas Potel's private vineyard holdings. 
  • Collection Bellenum is a back vintage series that Nicolas Potel sourced from his friends in the region, offering a magnificent selection of bottled history. The wines have moved only twice in their lives, from the original cellar to Potel's and now to yours!

Nicolas Potel grew up at Volnay's Domaine Pousse d'Or, where his father worked. He trained abroad and returned home in 1996 to build a négociant business and started Maison Nicolas Potel, where he sourced grapes from good parcels, often working with the growers to improve the quality. By 2002, he was making 120 wines from 50 different appellations, and the rest is history!

Press Reviews

Wine Spectator

92 Points - Bruce Sanderson, Senior Editor, NY

Offers black cherry, blackberry, iron and earth flavors. Firm, dense tannins provide support. The acidity is lively and drives the long finish. Should come together in a year or two. Best from 2021 through 2032.
