Savigny-lès-Beaune often shows the softer side of Pinot Noir. This wine has juicy red-cherry and raspberry flavors that balance the gentle, dry tannins. The low-yielding old vines from which the fruit was sourced give this selection extra concentration. This will benefit from medium-term aging.
Love it! Racy, acidic wild black cherry, fresh earth after spring rain and some smoke from a fizzing campfire. Awesome price. Refreshing and satisfying. Nice. he smoky cherry and raspberry fruit plays off a racy structure, while smoke, autumn leaf and mineral flit in the background. Offers good grip and a long aftertaste of spice and mineral.
Maison RocheView all from 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.
