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.

Located just outside the town of Saint Aubin, Les Frionnes is a small 3ha premier cru vineyard facing southeast. The grapes are on average 29 years old, planted in in clay & limestone soil. This is an engaging expression of Chardonnay that reveals zesty citrus acidity and flavours along side orchard fruit and leesy notes and texture. 

A great match for fish fritters with coleslaw or roasted veggies. 

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


94 Points - David Lawrason

This pours vivid lemon yellow. It has somewhat reserved yet rich nose of pineapple, marzipan, fine bread crust/lees, yellow flowers and a touch of honey. It is medium-full bodied, voluminous and broad yet anchored on excellent acidity, intensity, warmth and minerality. Very complete and powerful. Best now to 2030. Tasted January 2023
