Winemaker Notes

This is no ordinary Cote de Nuits-Villages. Potel owns this parcel, hence the "Domaine" moniker. Organically farmed, 74-year-old vines in the limestone-rich soils of the village of Comblanchien, which is just south of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Jancis Robinson captures the wine’s personality well: "liqueur-like aromas of blue Pinot fruit, plum and game. Otherwise the medium weight flavors possess a beguiling texture as the dense extract both coats the palate and pushes the moderately firm tannins to the background on the remarkably persistent finish where traces of rusticity and warmth arrive." Perfect for near term drinking, especially when double decanted. Superb value for lovers of earthy Burgundies.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Sourced from an area south of Nuits-St.-Georges near limestone quarries, this wine offers fresh and lively red-cherry and cranberry flavors. Full bodied and concentrated but crisp and piercing in style, this zesty red is approachable young but will likely.

Maison Roche de Bellene Proprietor Nicolas Potel Winery Image

Nicolas Potel, after his first steps as winemaker in the family Estate in Volnay: le Domaine de la Pousse d'Or, he built up his own negoce in 1996 then, in 2000, Maison Potel-Aviron in Beaujolais region. In 2005, Nicolas built up his own Estate, Domaine de Bellene, in Beaune with 15 Ha of organic vines in Côte de Beaune.

In 2008, after the departure from SAS Nicolas Potel company, Nicolas Potel launches his new negociant business called Maison Roche de Bellene. The philosophy is the same as Nicolas used to in Nuits-Saint-Georges: we have been keeping the same source of wines and the same relationship with growers that Nicolas have been working with the last 15 years. One extremely important difference from the past is the we are now only focusing on offering the finest wines, in limited cuvées in order to achieve our goal: being the only "Haute Couture" negociant in Burgundy.

Cote de Nuits Wine

Cote d'Or, Burgundy

View all products

The origin of perhaps the world’s very finest Pinot Noir, Côte de Nuits is the northern half of the Côte d'Or and includes the famous wine villages of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux and Nuits-St-Georges.

Fine whites from Chardonnay are certainly found in the Côte de Nuits, but with much less frequency than top-performing reds made of Pinot noir. The little village of Nuits-St-Georges in its southern end gave the region its name: Côte de Nuits. The city of Dijon marks its northern border.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
