Wine Spectator 90 points - The vibrant structure and creamy texture makes this white compelling, setting the stage for butter, pastry, lemon, apple and spice flavors. A mineral element seeps in on the aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2021.óB.S. (Jan 30 2013)
The village of Saint-Aubin is in a side valley, just to the west of Chassagne-Montrachet. However, the premier cru vineyard ”Le Charmois” is an eastfacing site directly adjacent to the premier crus of Chassagne. This wine comes from a one-acre parcel that was planted in 1976. The wine matures in barrel for 15 months, with 40% new oak.
|Nicolas Potel, after his first steps as winemaker in the family Estate in Volnay: le Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, he built up his own negoce in 1996 then, in 2000, Maison Potel-Aviron in Beaujolais region. In 2005, Nicolas built up his own Estate, Domaine de Bellene, in Beaune with 15 Ha of organic vines in Cote de Beaune. In 2008, after the departure from SAS Nicolas Potel company, Nicolas Potel launches his new negociant business called ”Maison Roche de Bellene”. The philosophy is the same as Nicolas used to in Nuits-Saint-Georges: we have been keeping the same source of wines and the same relationship with growers that Nicolas have been working with the last 15 years.|
