Tasting Notes

Stephen Tanzer, Score: 93-96

Deep aromas of red raspberry liqueur and chocolate. High-toned but quite youthfully unevolved, with a distinct smashed-fruit character. Combines outstanding mid-palate volume for the year with superb precision. Wonderfully layered grand cru with a very long finish featuring terrific grip and framing acidity. In its texture, this really transcends the vintage.

Producer

Maison Roche de Bellène

Maison Roche de Bellene is Nicolas Potel's négociant company. Following huge changes with bigger and more interesting projects behind the scenes, Nicolas left his former business and took up permanent residence at his new Beaune chai. Here, he is focusing on his négociant wines that he is continuing from his previous portfolio as well as producing a selection of domaine wines (under Domaine de Bellene). We have never seen him happier. He chose the name ‘Bellene' in honour of the ancient Roman name for Beaune. To house his new spirit and wines, he is rebuilding a 14th century cellar with only natural, pure materials including organic chalk and hemp. Unique in the region, we have never seen anything like it.
