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.

This Chassagne-Montrachet hails from vines averaging 55 years in age and was vinified in large, 500L barrels then aged for 13 months in 20% new wood. This wine shows great concentration, grip and complexity. The nose bursts with aromas of peach, pear, toasted nuts and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, textural and open-knit, this is a ripe and round Chassagne that is ready to drink now.

This will sing alongside butter-based sauces and creamy seafood dishes.

93 Points - Michael Godel

A bit more off the cuff reduction marks the earliest moments of Nicolas Potel’s rich hidden treasure of a Chassagne Montrachet. If you wondered aloud to yourself if the luxe would acquiesce to the twice bitten verdant orchard fruit in crack peppered style on the palate…take a breath…then you would have had a perfect shared moment with yourself. Linger, elasticity and length. Quelle surprise, what a shocker. Drink 2021-2028
