Tasting Notes

Jancis Robinson,
May 2012, Score: 18.5

Magnum. Bright blood red. Light nose but with lots of fresh fruit. Very vital. Still lots of energy. Jewel bright. Lots of fruit and lots of tannin – just needs time. Long and energetic. Drink 2020-2040

Producer

Maison Roche de Bellène

Maison Roche de Bellene is Nicolas Potel’s négociant company. Following huge changes with bigger and more interesting projects behind the scenes, Nicolas left his former business and took up permanent residence at his new Beaune chai. Here, he is focusing on his négociant wines that he is continuing from his previous portfolio as well as producing a selection of domaine wines (under Domaine de Bellene). We have never seen him happier. He chose the name ‘Bellene’ in honour of the ancient Roman name for Beaune. To house his new spirit and wines, he is rebuilding a 14th century cellar with only natural, pure materials including organic chalk and hemp. Unique in the region, we have never seen anything like it.

Region

Chambertin, Red Burgundy

Gevrey Chambertin lies well to the north of the Cote de Nuits. It has no less than 9 grand cru vineyards and the most famous of these is Chambertin. Often considered the greatest of all red Burgundies for its complexity, power and intensity, Chambertin’s fine wines are unsurprisingly rare and are priced accordingly. They also need years to develop to their full potential, but are undoubtedly worth the wait.
