Nicolas Potel first started his negotiant business in 1996 under his name and has created a name for himself among drinkers who look for great value Burgundies. He developed an extensive sourcing network of high quality grapes and has the skills to produce fantastic Burgundies at excellent price tags. Due to financial hardship in 2004, he sold his business and set up a new negotiant business under the name Roche de Bellene in 2009. With this new label, Nicolas Potel upholds the good quality of his wines in which the style remains as full and saturated with beautiful affection of oak. He has also been aggressively practicing biodynamic methods with most of the growers he works with operating either organically or biodynamically.

Saturated ruby-red. Creamy-sweet aromas of black raspberry and licorice. Fat, rich and deep; a seriously thick Volnay with lots of stuffing to buffer its tannins. Finishes long and subtle. No new oak was used for this cuvee, but here I didn't find myself missing new wood.
Apart from the Volnay En Chevret 1er Cru 1999, we can also offer 10 bottles of Nicolas Potel Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru 2006 at HK$1,400 per bottle –
