Item Description
Burgundy experienced another very warm and dry year in 2020, with a record-setting early harvest beginning on August 21. Fortunately, they made some fortuitous canopy management decisions earlier in the summer, leaving a denser canopy that reduced the damage that can be caused by too much sun exposure. With such dry conditions, the fruit was of course quite clean and healthy, although we had to harvest very early in the mornings to keep it fresh and cool. The fruit was quite ripe and concentrated, so shorter fermentation times and very gentle handling were needed to avoid the heaviness of over-extraction.
About Maison Roche
Maison Roche de Bellene is the négociant (making wine with fruit from other growers) of Nicolas Potel, the well-known and highly regarded winemaker in Burgundy. Nicolas is an old friend of Ernst Loosen, and we are extremely happy to have him as part of our import portfolio.

Founded in 2009, the emphasis at Roche de Bellene is on individual terroirs from vieilles vignes (old vines -- 40 years or older) that are farmed responsibly. All of the growers that Nicolas works with are either BIO certified or farming according to the principles of lutte raisonée ("sustainable viticulture"). This enables Nicolas to consistently produce the expressive, terroir-driven style that is his vision.
