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 mixed pack case includes 2 bottles of each wine:

2 bottles x Maison Roche de Bellene Vosne-Romanee Villages V.V. 2019

Red | Pinot Noir

94 points - WineAlign, Michael Godel 

Old vines Villages level Vosne Romanée gifts the richest of 2019 fruit off of vines aged 50-60 years of age picked mid-September on the 15th and other than being a Sunday in France not much else happened that day. What Vosne Romanée delivers more than anything else is glycerin and silky smooth palate texture, something the rest of Bellene’s ‘19s don’t achieve at this level. The perfume is appealing and charming but mouthfeel sets this wine apart. Poised, polished and upwardly modern, deftly structured and as far away from tannins that could ever be considered austere. Drink 2024-2031

2 bottles x Maison Roche de Bellene Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Clos Sorbe 2016

Red Pinot Noir
93 points - Wine Align, Michael Godel 

Delivers the finesse and shadowy Morey smoulder for a grippy pinot noir, sneaky like its maker, confident and destined to be there for the long term. Nicolas Potel has held on to this 2016 and we thank him for that, from the low-yielding (with thanks to springs frosts and rains) yet powerful vintage (because of a very hot summer). The wine is still in infancy, tough juddering from a mechanical equine, a mudder that will find its stride just as it comes out of the last turn. On track for a mid to late decade run. Drink 2024-2029.

2 bottles x  Maison Roche de Bellene Nuits-Saint-Georges Villages VV 2019

Red Pinot Noir
94 points - Wine Align, Michael Godel 

The old vines NSG is moving swimmingly along, resolving with ease and by this stage so readily available to please. The high density vines are 45 to 54 years of age and showing no signs of dropping quality, which combined with 2019 prepares for this über luxe pinot noir. Should be offered by every steakhouse and gin joint, in all the towns in all the world

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!
