Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, January 2014

    The slightly cooler higher location of Lavaux always makes for a very pure and clean styled Gevrey. Bright almost minty fruit aromas, this a beautifully refined wine, with attractive sweet spiced Pinot flavours. Long and vibrant on the finish.

    The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaux St-Jacques has another beautiful bouquet: so pure and refined, unfurling in the glass with fresh strawberry and raspberry preserve - hints of vanilla in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, good depth and structure with a straight-laced, "correct" finish that will demand 3-4 years to soften. This is very respectable and will reward cellaring.

    Bundles of oak on the nose – all new and glossy. The fruit perhaps suffers as a result – and there’s no sign of any other complexity beyond oak. Drink 2017-2028

Producer

Maison Roche de Bellene

Son of the family who used to own the illustrious Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, Nicolas Potel set up his négociant label Maison Roche de Bellene in 2008. A Bourguignon through and through, Nicolas’ unrivalled local network of thoroughly reliable grower-suppliers allows him to source fruit from the most sought-after parcels in the Côte. He also produces a selection of domaine wines (under Domaine de Bellene). The emphasis remains to this day on well-sited venerable vines and viticulture and the Maison Roche de Bellene label is the superlative source of attractive, well-priced Burgundy wines. Nicolas chose the name ‘Bellene' in honour of the ancient Roman name for Beaune.

Region

Gevrey Chambertin

The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.
