Winemaker Notes

Fruit comes from an east-facing 1er cru site that lies just on the northern border of Nuits-Saint-Georges, adjacent to the superb Aux Malconsorts vineyard in Vosne-Romanée.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
At the northern end of Nuits-Saint-Georges, next to Vosne-Romanée, this vineyard produces wines with something of the structure of its neighbor. Beautifully perfumed, the wine has rich tannins and dense black fruit. These give a sumptuous wine with richness and aging potential. Drink the wine from 2024.
WS 93
Wine Spectator

This powerful red combines ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry and a cool, stony note. All the elements are wrapped in a light cloak of oak, underscored by firm, chalky tannins. Very youthful and promising, offering a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2038.

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.

Nuits-St-Georges Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

Inhabiting the bottom end of the northern half of the Côte d’Or, Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune and contributes "nuits" to the name of Côte de Nuits (i.e., the northern half of the Côte d’Or).

The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grands Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premiers Crus.

The best Nuits-St-Georges Pinot Noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.

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.”
