Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    This vineyard is a king amongst kings. This year its nose is remarkably pretty, with scented violet notes tangled up amongst the dark cherries and blackberries. With supreme smoothness on the palate, the tannins are so effortlessly silken. Glossy and enticing.

    Jancis Robinson, November 2017,
    Score: 18.5

    100% new oak. Barrel sample. Dark crimson with darkest core. Dark and a touch charry on the nose. Succulent and utterly captivating with fragrant charm and a dry tannic finesse that is beautifully modulated with the fruit and freshness. Stunning now but so much more to come. So much juicy freshness even in a serious and long-term wine. Drink 2026-2042 (JH)

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.
