Nicolas Potel

Nicolas Potel, after his first steps as winemaker in the family Estate in Volnay: le Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, built up his own negoce in 1996 followed by Maison Potel-Aviron in the Beaujolais region in 2000. Nicolas went on to build his own Estate, Domaine de Bellene, in Beaune with 15 Ha of organic vines in Côte de Beaune in 2005.

In 2008, after the departure from the 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: they have been keeping the same source of wines and the same relationship with growers that Nicolas have been working with the last 15 years. One extremely important difference from the past is the Maison Roche de Bellen is now focusing only on offering the finest wines, in limited cuvées in order to achieve our goal: being the only "Haute Couture" negociant in Burgundy.

The range of wines at Maison Roche de Bellene focuses on wines from the Côte de Nuits, has the widest selection of Grand Crus from Burgundy and also has some prestige cuvées like the Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses or the fine Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Les Combottes.
