Nicolas Potel is a hugely talented winemaker, possibly even greater than his highly renowned father before him. From an exceptional vintage, this 2018 Meursault is gloriously intense, creamy ripe, poised and steely fresh with a wrap of subtle oak.
Beyond the Label
Richly textured with intense fruit, bright mineral notes, touch of oak
Roche de Bellene is the craftsmanship of Nicolas Potel, who learned at an early age from his renowned father Gérard, then gained experience in Australia and California. His father's early death meant the family estate had to be sold and Nicolas was left to build up from nothing. At Bellene, Nicolas is both talented winemaker using estate fruit, and "haute-couture négociant", sourcing top-quality, old-vine grapes from individual growers. His wines are "absolutely delicious" (Neal Martin), “in the class of the very best that Burgundy can produce,” wrote Jasper Morris MW. This ripe Meursault was fermented and aged in part new oak, lending a beautiful smoky undertone to the succulent, ripe fruit with its cut of minerality. It'll age well.
"Fine and extremely crisp but with roundness from the creamy texture and the oak"
Critic, Jancis Robinson For the 2017 vintage
