ROCHE DE BELLENE SAINT AUBIN FRANCE BURGUNDY W
Founded by Nicolas Potel, one of Burgundy’s most innovative and resourceful vignerons, Maison Roche de Bellene is a micro-négociant that is focused on producing balanced, characteristic wines from vineyards that are farmed responsibly. The excellent small growers that Bellene has worked with for many years are all either certified BIO organic or are farming according to the principles of lutte raisonée (sustainable viticulture). This enables Nicolas to consistently produce the authentic, terroir-driven style of Burgundy that is his vision, while also offering great value in an extensive selection of appellations.
Made from 100% Chardonnay and aged in French oak casks, their Saint-Aubin lifts from the glass with rich notes of baked butter pastry, vanilla, cinnamon, and stewed apples. The palate is bold with flavors of orchard fruit, clotted cream, and a light dancing of lingering minerality.
