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.  

Opening up with a pure bouquet of white flower petals and honeysuckle that merge into soft honeyed aromas layered over top apple, pears and crème pâtissière. On the palate the wine reveals great depth and balance sewn together with a delicate thread of acidity. Lees ageing adds weight and texture to the wine, while soft oak notes melt into the orchard and citrus flavours infusing gentle spices into the outstanding finish. 

Indulge when pairing this wine with food & match its rich complexity with a lobster bisque or duck foie gras with stuffed artichokes. 

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


95 Points - Michael Godel

Wow. To say this Corton Charlemagne is youthful beyond reproach would be a massive understatement and 2021 a year that hold no punches because greatness lies in the eye of the experienced. This ’21 will not jump out and grab the senses with instancy or elicit immediate gratification but it will stop to make you consider Bourgogne’s place in humanity and existence. It will distract you from anything you may have been doing by performing some kind of subtle hypnosis so that minutes go by before you realize you have been tasting and thinking about everything and nothing at all. A quasi state of dreaming, “to be nowhere, to be no one, to have nothing, to be free.” A great effect from white Burgundy that will only get better as the flesh, musky aromas, waxy feels and viscous textures develop in this wine. Drink 2025-2036.
