Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2016

    This wine is a bruiser in its youth. Blue and black fruit characters dominate: blueberry, sloes, black cherries. There is a density to this wine with its abundance of ripe tannins, which gives the wine a structured fullness lasting right to the finish. Long ageing potential.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2018,
    Score: 91

    A reserved if not mute nose only grudgingly reveals its spice and earth-inflected aromas of very ripe poached plum, cassis and soft menthol nuances. There is good volume to the velvet-textured, round and delicious medium weight plus flavors that exude a discreet minerality on the impressively rich and sappy finish that is shaped by dusty and firm but largely buried tannins that should enable this slightly warm effort to age successfully for a very long time. 91/100. Drink 2027+

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

Nuits-Saint-Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
