Maison Roche de Bellene's 2020 Bourgogne Pinot Noir "Cuvée Réserve" epitomizes the pursuit of quality in Burgundy winemaking. Founded by the visionary Nicolas Potel, the micro-négociant is dedicated to crafting balanced, terroir-driven wines from responsibly farmed vineyards. This entry-level Pinot Noir, sourced from 20 to 50-year-old vines in the Côte d’Or, showcases meticulous vineyard management and vinification techniques. The 2020 vintage, marked by warm and dry conditions, resulted in ripe and concentrated fruit, reminiscent of Burgundy's excellent 1995 vintage. With minimalist winemaking practices and selective blending, Maison Roche de Bellene captures the essence of Burgundy—a delicate balance of fine fruit expression and terroir authenticity. This wine, aged in used French oak barriques and demi-muids, offers a glimpse into the region's heritage, reflecting both tradition and innovation in every sip.
