Our advise:  Stock up now for Thanksgiving! IS right around the corner!

Product Description

"Nicolas Potel, the well-known and highly regarded winemaker in Burgundy, has founded a new Domaine (estate-owned vineyards) and Maison (a négociant, making wine with fruit from other growers). Nicolas is an old friend of Ernst Loosen, and we are extremely happy to have him join our import portfolio.
Domaine de Bellene is located in Beaune, the very heart of Burgundy. Nicolas now owns 60 acres of vineyards in several villages throughout the Côte d'Or. The vineyards have been farmed according to organic practices since 2006 and are now certified BIO. Vinification is minimalist in approach — no enzymes, cultured yeasts or acid adjustments are used, and filtration is avoided. Nicolas purchased the 16th century estate buildings in 2005 and is working to renovate them in as green a manner as possible. Environmental responsibility is being integrated into all aspects of the estate: buildings, vineyards, cellar work, energy conservation and generation, and packaging materials." - Winery Notes

Domaine Roche de Bellene Bourgogne Rouge 2010 Reviews

"This rich red is full of black cherry, violet and currant aromas and flavors, with a silky texture.  Suave and concentrated, offering fine harmony and a lingering finish of earth and mineral.  Drink now through 2019." - 90, Wine Spectator

Domaine Roche de Bellene Bourgogne Rouge 2010 Tasting Notes

The entry-level red Burgundy comes from vineyards in the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. The vines range in age from 56 to 88 years and are farmed sustainably. The major part (80%) of this wine is matured in barriques (15% of which is new oak) and the remainder is done in stainless steel. This maintains a pure style with bright fruit and a fine texture.
