Domaine de Bellene

While running Maison Nicolas Potel in Nuits St Georges, Nicolas Potel set up his négociant company in 1997, the year after his father’s death and the sale of Domaine de la Pousse d’Or which Gérard Potel had been managing. In 2005 he was able to buy some vineyards. The company has been renamed Domaine de Bellene from the 2008 vintage.

From the 2007 vintage Domaine Potel has been up and running in some marvellous old cellars, renovated to an ecologically admirable standard (‘Haute Qualité Environnementale'), on the Dijon road out of Beaune. Including some farming contracts, the domaine now comprises 22 hectares as below. The vineyards are being converted to organic farming, with some biodynamic elements. Nowadays, the vineyards are situated in Santenay, Saint Romain, Volnay, Beaune, Nuits Saint Georges and Vosne Romanée. They are all vines from 50 to 110 years old.

All our vines are grown with the biodynamic methods. We add no outside products to our wines, no acid, no cultured yeast, nutrients, enzymes, sugar...
