Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2021

    The only disappointment with Clos St Denis is its size - at just 6 hectares it is Morey St Denis’s smallest Grand Cru. Respected for being the most floral and finest of the commune’s great vineyards, this is a beautifully graceful wine. With a medley of blackberries and chocolate cake, there is generous fruit showing off the warmth of the year, kept in check by the exemplary finesse of the vineyard. The brush of acidity on the finish keeps the palate lively and gives a wine of perfect balance.

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

Clos Saint-Denis

Tucked between Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny, and sharing the same stratum of limestone, Morey-St-Denis is unfairly less celebrated than its better known neighbours. It boasts five Grand Crus, including Clos-St-Denis. Slightly lighter than Clos-de-la-Roche, Clos Saint-Denis' wines balance delicacy, finesse and wonderful Pinot fruit - the quintessential Grand Cru of Morey-St-Denis.
