Full to the brim with silky charm, Roche de Bellene Pinot Noir is a real treasure from acclaimed Burgundy winemaker and négociant Nicolas Potel. Made from richly flavoured, old vine grapes, it’s a superb, berry scented introduction to the region.
"A fantastic introduction to Nicolas Potel’s outstanding range of Burgundies"
Angus McLean Fine Wine Advisor
Nicolas Potel’s red Burgundy is as authentic as it is delicious. Quite a rarity at this more modest end of the price spectrum. The Times wrote: “When Nicolas Potel, son of Gérard, set up shop he was clearly destined for the top. What has surprised Burgundy watchers is how swiftly Potel Junior has hit the spot.” He founded Roche de Bellene in 2009, intending to become Burgundy’s only ‘Haute Couture’ négociant. Key to this is his close work with growers to create wines focused on individual terroirs and precious old vines. This, his entry level red, is lavished with the same skill and professional pride as his illustrious Grands Crus and will appeal to beginners and experts alike. Supple enough to drink on its own and ideal with seared tuna.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
