Maison Roche de Bellene

Maison Roche de Bellene was founded in 2008 by Nicolas Potel after he parted company with his previous partners who own the right to the `Nicolas Potel` label. Located in Burgundy`s Cote de Beaune, the estate is working towards full biodynamic status and currently they use a number of natural and sustainable processes to produce their wines. Nicolas works with a number of growers and has an old-vine strategy, with the oldest vines well over 100. Nicolas is one of the most exciting ‘new generation’ winemakers in Burgundy producing exceptional vintages year after year.

Burgundy

The illustrious wine region of Burgundy, home of the world's greatest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, can be confusing for even experienced wine buffs. Spanning 26,000 hectares of vineyards and over 3,000 individual producers across nearly 100 different appellations, unlocking the mysteries of Burgundy for your drinking enjoyment can require a sense of adventure, but getting to know a few villages and their style is a good way to start the journey. Burgundy is broken into six distinct areas. Just south of Dijon, the Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits make up the larger Cote d'Or, considered the beating heart of Burgundian production and the focus of the fine wine world. Vineyards are divided into tiny parcels, and some growers may only own a row or less of vines in the most esteemed sites. Chablis, in the north, is famous for its crisp whites, while south of the Cote d'Or Cote Chalonnaise and Maconnais offer great value. Propping up the Burgundy map is the large region of Beaujolais, the place to uncover juicy, fruity, unoaked Gamay wines. For our Fine Wine Burgundy selection go to Fine Wine where you can choose from a top wine selection from the renowned villages of Puligny Montrachet, Meursault, Nuit St Georges, Gevrey Chambertin, and many more top Burgundian appellations.

Cote de Beaune

Named for the primary town in the area, Beaune, the Cote de Beaune is an important wine-producing area in Burgundy, France. As part of the larger Cote d'Or region, along with Cote de Nuits, the best wines of the Cote de Beaune are amongst the finest in the world, with prices to match. The Cotes d'Or escarpment is the region's spine, and the best vineyards lie on the slopes, with limestone-rich soils. Vineyard class and status is determined by the quality of these soils, based on over 100 years of classifications. The area has a continental climate, with warm days and very cool nights, and there is a danger of springtime frosts and hail damage - in 2013 70 percent of the crop was lost. Well known appellations in the Cote de Beaune include Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Volnay and Corton and there several Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards across the region. Outside of these smaller, premium growing areas, many vineyard sites have the regional Bourgogne appellation applied to them.

Corton

The largest Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy, Corton covers the slopes of the famous 'Hill of Corton' at the northern end of the Cote de Beaune. The 145-hectare vineyard is home to several famous sub-regions, including Perrieres and Clos du Roi for their red wines and Corton-Charlemagne for rich, flinty whites. Wines were first made on the hill as far back as Charlemagne – hence the name of the famous plot, and the emperor, who died in 814AD, is thought to have ordered white grape plantings on the west side of the hill so the wine wouldn't stain his beard. Today, wines from this famous appellation can command very high prices, and the red and white wines of Corton are some of the finest in the world.

Pinot Noir

Fickle to grow, tricky to make and often majestic to drink, Pinot Noir is the grape of Burgundy, and grown all over the world, most notably in Oregon, New Zealand and California. It is also one of the major blending grapes for Champagne. While the wines from the old world and new are undeniably different, Pinot Noir is a very distinctive variety and its wines reveal soft strawberry and cherry flavours with a heady aroma and often complex savoury characteristics when the grapes are placed in the right hands.
