Nicolas Potel is a hugely talented winemaker, possibly even greater than his renowned father, Gérard, before him. From a challenging, but ultimately highly successful vintage, this is a fine white with gorgeous ripeness and a whip of minerality.

Domaine de Bellene is the craftsmanship of Nicolas Potel, who learned at an early age from his renowned father, Gérard. He went on to gain experience in Australia and California. His father's early death meant the family estate had to be sold and Nicolas was left to build 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 wine is from densely planted vines in the Hautes Côtes. Wild yeast fermentation in oak, with 'malo' to lend creaminess, it combines a roundness with minerality.
"Nicolas Potel’s wines have a strong following. His wide portfolio can be absolutely delicious"
