Winemaker Notes

This appellation lies on both sides of the town of Nuits-St-Georges, and incorporates the vineyards of neighboring Prémeaux-Prissey to the south. The wines are typically sturdy and long lived, although those from sites neighboring Vosne-Romanée to the north show the most fruit and elegance.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: 2019 Maison de Bellene Nuits-Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes is fully packed and formidable on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits demonstrative aromas and flavors of black fruit, anise, and oak. Enjoy it with rosemary and garlic-accented roast leg of lamb. (Tasted: June 14, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
WS 92
Wine Spectator
This is aromatic and packed with black cherry, blackberry, violet and oak spice flavors. Lively acidity and refined tannins add lift as this cruises to a fruit- and spice-filled finish. Drink now through 2028.

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.”
