From: Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: The wine is vinified in stainless steel and then aged for about 5-6 months in neutral oak barrels to give the wine some texture. It is ruby red in color – so bright and clean you can read through it! It has red and blackberries, cherries, blackcurrant, licorice, and spice notes on the nose. On the palate, it is smooth, with a nice length of red cherries and black fruits on the finish. The tannins are silky and well-balanced resulting in harmonious and easy drinking wine.
Pairing: Enjoy with poached eggs in red wine sauce – the famous “Oeufs Meurette”, cured meats, salmon entrees, ratatouille, and creamy cheeses such as French Camembert.
Nicolas Potel decided to set up his own wine négociant business after the death of his father in 1996 and the subsequent sale of Domaine Pousse d`Or, which his father had been managing.
The Nicolas Potel label became an excellent source of predominantly red wines, from Bourgogne Rouge to the Grands Crus of the Cote de Nuits. His hallmark has been to make wines that respect both their vineyard provenance and the style of the vintage while remaining attractively priced.
Suffering from a lack of capital, he sold the business to the Cottin brothers of Labouré-Roi in 2004, continuing as before until he parted company with his new owners in spring 2009. Since then, he has developed his own Domaine de Bellene and negociant business Maison Roche de Bellene in Beaune.
