Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    Despite the severity of the frost in Volnay, the wines that have been made here are absolutely charming. With no new oak, the pretty red fruit aromatics so characteristic of the village are able to sing out.

    Score: 87-89

    The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans has a more cohesive and attractive nose than the Vieilles Vignes with black cherries and mulberry aromas, though I would still have liked a little more detail. The palate is medium-bodied with quite rustic tannin at the moment, the 30% whole bunch addition lending a distinct earthiness and dictating the Pommard-like finish. Drink 2020-2028

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

Volnay

A red wine appellation only, wines from Volnay might be considered the most revered of southern Burgundy. They have been celebrated since the 18th century for their delicacy. But they are not fruit forward like those of Beaune or Chorey Lès Beaune nor have the brooding structure of Pommard.Instead, they have superb linearity, focus and poise while sheathed in velvety tannin. This slightly reticent personality comes out even more with a bit of age, though some can be approached very young. There are no grand cru vineyards in Volnay, but there are some excellent premier cru examples including Volnay Les Champans and Volnay Les Caillerets. Chardonnay grown in the shared Santenots vineyard must be labelled as Meursault.
